I'm so grateful for this book!

From infancy we knew there was something "different" about my daughter. The older she got the more apparent it became that she had some unique struggles and strengths to deal with. When a friend told me about Sensory Processing Disorder and started researching like crazy. My daughter has not been officially diagnosed, but what I learned about SPD just fit so much of what we saw in her. Learning about SPD gave us many tools to help her.

So imagine my excitement when

An empowering story for children with Sensory Processing Disorder.

My first thought upon opening this book was "WOW!" The pictures are absolutely beautiful! The colors are rich, and the main character, Clark, is a realistic looking child. This makes it fun for children young and old to look at. Once I read the story, I was very impressed. The author, Kelli Call, obviously has spent a lot of time researching Sensory Processing Disorder, or SPD. It is also apparent that she has a great understanding of the needs of children. The story is narrated by Clark, who is ...more

Whether or not your child has SPD, this book is a must-read! Sensory Processing Disorder (which affects up to 16% of children) is often looked at as a weakness, but Clark turns his SPD into his superpowers! My 4-year-old has asked to read this over and over. Beautiful illustrations, engaging writing, and a message that definitely matters.

My kids and I enjoyed this story about a boy who has "superpowers" which help him concentrate or react to things or others in an appropriate way when his super sensitivity otherwise makes it difficult to do so. If you have a child that falls on the autism spectrum, this book might help. Wonderfully illustrated as well.

I love the fun way the author uses superpowers to explain what it is like for a child with sensory disorder. The illustrations are amazing and really capture the image the author is trying to portray. Such a wonderful book!
Great art. Very informative. Everyone needs to be know about SPD.
1 in 20 kids have it and most parents have never heard of it.
(I received a copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review....and I honestly like it a lot.)

That explains it

I know quite a few children with these super powers. I also realize I too have had some of these super powers. It explains so much. Thank you

What a unique one of a kind childrens' book! Not only is this a book that our society at large can benefit greatly from, but it is a book we all should have had yesterday! Thank goodness its here now! The illustrations are super top notch, high quality and reminiscent of a comic book. The story is endearing and will pull at the heart strings of parents (especially of those who have children with SPD like myself), and will inspire, comfort, and gladden the heart of the children who it resonates w ...more

My wife and some of my kids have this disorder.
I'm so glad to see a book that informs parents (and kids) about it.
This was well written and I loved the cartoony art.
