Winner of an iParenting Media Award, this adorable picture book shows readers the challenges that children with autism face and the obstacles they overturn. It is lovingly written in the perspective of three-year-old Foster, who explains his experiences with his older brother, Gavin, who has autism. Vibrant photographs bring you right into their living room, school, and playground. 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.
Angie Healy is a high school English teacher at Flower Mound High School in Texas. A graduate of Arizona State University, she has worked in the education field for the past twelve years as a middle school teacher, preschool director, and senior high teacher. She is the mother of the two young boys photographed in her book. Her biggest and most rewarding challenge in life has been the birth of her son Gavin; she finds him fascinating. He has enabled her to see life through different eyes and has helped her to become a better teacher.
