My daughter, who is a special education teacher and has an autistic 8 year old son came home with this book and show him one illustration, read it, acted out with the situation shown and I was amazed with his reaction. He had just decided to play basketball before she did this, and decided to put that aside and got the book and would not put it down. He couldn't get enough of it. He sat grining and wanted to read more. I know this can be a great help to him and so many more children who want to be friends and don't know how to go about it in acceptable ways. What an enlightenment!!!! Angie "A Very proud Grandma"
