My Friend with Autism by Beverly Bishop, illustrated by Craig Bishop

Written for classmates of spectrum students and the classmates' parents, this kid-friendly book explains in positive ways that children with autism are good at some things, not so good at others - just like everyone else! The narrator (a peer) notes that his friend's senses work "really well" - he can hear sounds no one else can hear; his eyes work so well bright lights can hurt them. In all cases, the differences are described in a kind, understanding manner. There are charming illustrations for readers to colour. "Notes for Adults" offer parents more detailed information about the "kid''s pages."
