Great and simple book for helping children (and adults) understand the basics of Asperger Syndrome and the children who have it. Colorful illustrations with simple explanations.

A beautiful introduction in understanding how Asperger's manifests itself.

Melanie Walsh has cleverly described Isaac as having a superpower. Even as an adult it gave me insight into Asperger's in a delightfully simple yet informative way.

I think it is a wonderful book for introducing children to Isaac's superpowers and how simple everyday actions, words or emotions can be quite confusing and sometimes scary to Isaac.

I think this book is a must read for any child and not just if they have contact with someone with Asperger's because it encourages children to consider Isaac's needs which is teaching compassion which is a good skill to have.

The links in the back of the book are fantastic and I would love to see similar links in other books that are topical like this.
