WITH THE LIGHT: Raising an Autistic Child by Keiko Tobe

With the Light

WITH THE LIGHT is a 7-volume manga series I really want to read! The books follow Hikaru’s life from birth through his teenage years. His mother knows something is different about her boy, but when he is diagnosed with autism we become exposed to real-life complications, odd social situations, looming sexual awareness and everyday disruptions to family life.

The subject matter is so hard to live with, let alone share with others, that I think it is a very important series. The manga format is engaging for teens, while the subject matter is complex and personal. I think anyone working with autistic children or their siblings should get this series. It should be in doctor’s waiting rooms and high school libraries. A must read for teachers and therapists.

Shiver Me Letters: A Pirate ABC by June Sobel

Shiver Me LettersIf you need a fabulous Alphabet book  — this is it!  It is fun to read, well-paced and brilliant. It should be in every kindergarten classroom and is a perfect gift for any 3-6 year old.

“R,” roared the captain. “R’s not enough. We need other letters to help make us tough. “Let’s sail far away to find ABC’s. Bring me back D’s, E’s, F’s, and some G’s.” “R,” cried the crew. “R, we agree! Let’s look for an A and a B and a C!”

And so the adventure begins. Each capital letter is cleverly found and the text is in brilliant rhyme.  I highly recommend this book.    *****
