When parents receive the news that their child has autism, they spend countless hours researching the subject, usually at night, after an exhausting day. Teachers, when they hear that they’ll have a student with an autism spectrum disorder, also try to learn as much as they can.
These novels were written for such parents and teachers – entertaining reads that are fun, yet still offer strategies and information on autism.

Through the eyes of Ben, we get a glimpse of both the challenges and joys of being a parent of a child who sees the world in different ways.”
– “Unlike some stories that speak of autistic children, this one brings a wealth of hope and information!
