Editorial Reviews

"Children with autism long for friends just like everyone else. They have difficulty making and keeping friends, and need others to understand why they behave the way they do and how to be a supportive friend. Mary Louise is a role model for kindness to others who are different like Albert.I highly recommend this book for anyone working with young children to help them begin to understand autism and others with differences."- Muse Watson, Actor andHonorary Chairman of STARS4Autism
