Helping Kids Understand Autism through a Sibling’s Eyes (2005) by Angie Healy
Three-year-old Foster explains his perspective of his older brother, Gavin, who has autism. This adorable picture book shows readers the challenges the boys face and the obstacles they overturn. Vibrant photographs bring you right into their living room, school and playground, adding an essential element of reality to the story.
Foster’s innocent approach is perfect for teaching others what autism is all about, and for letting other siblings of children with autism know that they are not alone. Angie Healy, the boys’ mother, provides a how-to section at the end so families can create their own personalized books.
