Ethan's Story: My Life With Autism

I have been given the pleasure of reviewing several books for some up and coming authors.  Being a kindergarten teacher, I chose to review Ethan's book first.

Ethan's Story: My Life With Autism

Ethan is an eight-year-old  little boy living with autism.  He wrote Ethan's Story: My Life with Autism to explain a bit about how he lives every day.  The book is written from his perspective and gives insight into some of the unique characteristics of autism.

Let's cut to the chase. 

I loved this book.  Anyone sharing your life with someone that has autism, should consider investing in a copy.  The simple text and colorful illustrations are just right for even the youngest readers to understand.  The text matches the illustrations allowing for a deeper understanding.

Being a teacher, I have worked with children that have autism.  This book would have been a wonderful resource to share in my classroom.

Here is an excerpt from my favorite page:

Sometimes I lose track of where my body is and I run into people.  I don't mean to and I really don't like fighting.

This is so true of all children (and many adults).  I know the children reading the book can make a personal connection with the story and their new friend.

My hope is that Ethan's book becomes a resource to schools across the nation.  I hope that by hearing Ethan's story children will better understand autism.  I hope children will realize that a child with autism is just like them... unique and special.
