Just Elliot

Just Elliot written by Sue Baer and illustrated by  Pamela Barcita is a book that should be read in every elementary school classroom.  It will open children's eyes and teachers' as well into the world of a child with an autism spectrum disorder.  As a speech pathologist I've worked with many youngsters with this diagnosis and I don't think I've ever read one from a six-year-old's perspective.  Follow Elliot from his first day of school to the day he and his classmates accept him for who he is.
My friend's grandson, now a college student, was the inspiration for this heartwarming and superbly illustrated story.  And note:  The forward is by Temple Grandin, known world over as a spokesperson for those on the spectrum as she is herself. Five stars!

Sounds good. I looked it up on Amazon. No Kindle, but I might buy the hardcover.

Hi Margaret! The digital and enhanced versions will all be released within 90 days, but the hardcover is best to showcase the amazing illustrations. Thanks for supporting the book! Jane Stein, consultant on the book and mom of Elliot
