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

This is the third title in a beautiful new series of picture books launches Roar, the brave and strong little dinosaur who knows it's okay to do things differently. Roar books and resources have been specially created to help children with high-functioning Autism/Asperger's Syndrome and those who live and work with them. Just like Roar, children with autism think in a different way. This enchanting storybook invites children, parents, carers and teachers 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.' Roar is the main character in this series of books, 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 overloaded mind.

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

Sam Bateman and family

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
