Winner of a Preferred Choice Award from Creative Child Magazine

The first book of its kind that tells children with autism they are KIDS with autism, as it gently pokes fun of the onerous label "autistic." Readers will feel better about themselves after reading about their new friend, the narrator, who also has autism--as well as many other more important characteristics. Having autism is just one small part of his overall character and humanity, and we would never again label him as simply "autistic."

About the Author
Lynda Farrington Wilson is an artist whose talents and experiences have culminated in writing, illustrating and advocating for children with autism and with sensory processing disorders.

She is certified in the Affect-Based Language Curriculum and has created social and independent skill development programs using peer models in the classroom. Lynda has illustrated several books. Her first book, endorsed by Temple Grandin, "Squirmy Wormy" "How I Learned to Help Myself," helps children understand their sensory issues while providing easy every day activities for self-regulation. When not advocating, Lynda enjoys capturing life's moments in custom pencil portraits and playing in the mud on the potter's wheel.
