MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book offers another approach to furthering the understanding of autism ... encouraging autistic children to learn more about themselves, and guiding them through a journey of self-discovery. It is a valuable resource for awareness and ... self-esteem! Such a book could have been very helpful to me and my family when I was a child." -Dave Spicer, diagnosed at age 46
