<b>A Mysterious Girl Puts the Future of a Kingdom in the Balance!</b><br> One icy-cold winter night, everything changes: a young girl shows up at the king and new queen's castle doorstep wearing little more than a purple jacket and carrying a black pouch. The king recognizes the mystery girl's identity as the long-lost princess without her uttering even a single word. However, the new queen refuses to believe the king's claims. In turn, a devious plan is hatched... and, the results are quite fitting!<br> <li>This new twist on Hans Christen Andersen's <i>The Princess and the Pea</i> is surely to be loved by all fairy tale enthusiasts. <li><i>The Princess and the Ruby: An Autism Fairy Tale</i> adds to much-needed age-appropriate literature for girls with Autism Spectrum Disorder. <li>Both fun and education are cleverly weaved in this magical tale, teaching children to be comfortable in their own skin and to respect the differences of others. <br><br> <b>Acclaim for The Princess and the Ruby</b><br><br> "As someone who has a couple of friends with Autistic kids, I understand the challenges these families have. This modern day twist on The Princess and the Pea not only shows how others judge something they do not understand, but how someone with Autism can see, feel and do things one might not expect."<br> --V.S. Grenier, <i>Mom's Choice</i> Silver Honoree and award-winning author<br> "<i>The Princess and the Ruby</i> is a heartwarming narrative; a tale that beautifully depicts several unique characterizations of Autism Spectrum Disorder. Jewel Kats has refreshingly shed light upon a daily struggle to redefine 'normalized behaviors', in an admirable effort to gain societal acceptance and respect."<br> --Vanessa De Castro, Primary Residential Counselor with Autistic Youth<br><br> Learn more at <b>www.JewelKats.com</b><br> Book #2 in the Fairy Ability Tales from Loving Healing Press<br><br> JUV039150 Juvenile Fiction : Social Issues - Special Needs<br> EDU026020 Education : Special Education - Learning Disabilities<br> EDU026050 Education : Special Education - Social Disabilities<br>

Rated 5 out of 5 by from helping children learn about autism Have you ever known a person with autism? Do you even know what autism is? One icy-cold winter night, a young girl, about eight, shows up at the king and new queen's castle doorstep, wearing a dark, purple jacket, carrying a black pouch filled with a collection of plain rocks, and not uttering even a single word. She twirls, spins in circles, sways back and forth, and plays with her rocks. The king believes that she is his long-lost autistic daughter by his first wife who had died. The new queen, however, refuses to believe the king's claims and develops a devious plan involving a ruby placed under the girl’s mattress to test if she is really a princess. What will the child do? Is she really who she appears to be? Autism or autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a general term for a group of complex neural disorders of brain development characterized, in varying degrees, by impaired social interaction and verbal and non-verbal communication, and by restricted, repetitive, or stereotyped behaviors. It may have a strong genetic basis, there is possible association with agents such as rare mutations that cause birth defects, and some controversial environmental causes, such as heavy metals, pesticides, and/or childhood vaccines, have been proposed. There is increasing suspicion that autism is a complex disorder whose core aspects have distinct causes that often co-occur. Researchers now think that there is no one cause of autism just as there is no one type of autism. Even though I have no personal experience with autism, as a former board member of a homeschooling conference, I have spoken with special needs presenters who deal with autism and have talked with parents who are trying to educate their autistic children. The Princess and the Ruby by author Jewel Kats, with illustrator Richa Kinra's colorful drawings, is a modern twist on Hans Christian Andersen's “The Princess and the Pea” that provides some much-needed, age-appropriate literature for girls with Autism Spectrum Disorder. My friend V. S. Grenier says that it “not only shows how others judge something they do not understand, but how someone with Autism can see, feel, and do things one might not expect." A fun story and educational information are both woven together in this wonderful tale that teaches children to be comfortable in their own skin and to respect the differences of others. Kindle and ePub editions are also available. Another book by Jewel Kats in Loving Healing Press’s Fairy Ability Tales series is Cinderella's Magical Wheelchair.
