This is a very simple picture book for young children where a young child is giving examples of the things that are different about her brother, and therefore her home and life. The accompanying pictures are simple, bright and humorous. At the end of the book there is a list of the positive things she can do with and for her brother. Louise Gorrods book is a great starting point for teaching a very young child about autism, although you might need to explain that all children - even those with ASD - are different as it is unlikely that their brother or sister will be identical to the one portrayed in this book. Debbie Waters, NAS Project Officer and mother of a child with autism.
