Synopsis

Looking After Louis Big Book by Lesley Ely

There's a new boy at school called Louis. Louis sits next to me and I look after him. He's not quite like the rest of us. Sometimes I wonder what he's thinking about. He often just sits and stares at the wall. If I ask him what he's looking at he says, 'Looking at' and carries on looking. This big book introduction to the issue of autism shows how - through imagination, kindness, and a special game of football - Louis's classmates find a way to join him in his world. Then they can include Louis in theirs.

Child Education This is an attractive book that is well illustrated and provides a tactful introduction to some of the aspects of autistic spectrum disorders. I would score this book 10/10. National Child Minding Association ... a moving picture book about an autistic schoolboy who makes a small breakthrough to which his friends and teachers respond.
