Enter to win a copy of Aiden’s Waltz by Victoria Marin!
We are giving away one copy of this book— enter at the end of the post.
Victoria Marin is not only a mother of a son who has Autism but she is also an occupational therapist who has devoted her life to helping others.
This is well-written easy to read story that teaches children how to perceive other children with disabilities. It also highlights how children with Autism can also achieve greatness on their own terms. It is an inspirational tale of struggles and successes that other children with disabilities may wish to try. That dancing could be an after school hobby that a child with a disability could feel that they belong and feel good about.
The illustrations clearly portray Aiden’s feelings. I feel that a child with Autism whether severe or high functioning would love to read this book. The bright colours and descriptive illustrations would attract the more challenged students. The large letters would make it easier for the higher functioning students with Autism to read. Any child that can read at a grade 2 level would love this book. I recommend this book to all children, teachers and caregivers.
