Synopsis

Roar's Creating, Let's Get Making! by Hazel Reeves, Jay Morris

Roar is the main character in each book, alongside a family member and occasionally a supportive friend. She uses her special talents and likes to be busy, but enjoys taking a break by hiding - just as children with Asperger's find joining in can be hard work and like to take a break, perhaps by doing a simple activity on their own, routine and ritual restore an over active mind. Full colour throughout, it is written in rhyming verse, with 36 pages in each book. This beautiful new series of books launches Roar, the brave and strong little dinosaur who knows its okay to do things differently. Roar books and resources have been specially created to help children with high-functioning Autism/Aspergers Syndrome and those who live and work with them. Just like Roar, the children with autism think in a different way. The enchanting books invite children, parents/carers and professionals to celebrate the strengths of children with Asperger's. Roar has many great qualities including honesty, determination, attention to detail, exceptional memory and a sense of humour. Roar helps children move from feeling, I've got it wrong! to saying, This is me. I'm okay .

Reviews

Wow - what an amazing set of books. The intriguing text and detailed illustrations will serve as an excellent vehicle for cross-curricular discussion with all ages. I love Roar and can see her in many of our children! - Sue Belton, Head Teacher and SENCo.

All three books would also help other family members, classmates and teachers to appreciate the strengths of the child with autism or Asperger syndrome and, as such, these would make a great addition to any home or primary school library. Miranda Kemp, Editor, Communication magazine, NAS.
