A book that is beneficial for my elementary library collection to represent kids on the autism spectrum from the standpoint of a friend who is understanding and accepting of all that entails in her friend, Benny. Lays out his unique characteristics in a non-judgmental way that will appeal to kids. Though it does feel a little bit forced at times - in both the rhyming prose and the illustrations that seem to represent a large variety of cultures and identities, yet with many kids not repeated so it seems they are not all in the same class making it feel less natural/realistic.
