The Lovereading4Kids comment
Isaac tells us he has superpowers that make him different to his brother and the other kids at school: it’s an effective and positive way to explain Asperger’s to young children. For example, Isaac says that as a superhero he has lots to think about, and though he tries to remember to say hello to people he knows, he might forget – but he’s not being rude. He tells us too that he feels scared when he looks people in the eyes, but his dad has taught him to look at people’s foreheads instead. The approach, and the bright, friendly illustrations make this an excellent book for starting discussions about autism and will help children and adults too understand more about the condition. ~ Andrea Reece
