He is gifted, talented, and has autism. Mommy's Smile is a heartwarming story told from the perspective of Josiah, a young boy with autism. Through this detailed account of his daily life, he shares his struggles, fears, and challenges doing day-to-day tasks considered typical for children his age.
This colorful yet informative book is designed for families seeking ways to explain the nuances of autism to siblings, extended family members, or educators unfamiliar with the behaviors and challenges face by young children with autism. It also offers insight into soothing activities that might be appealing and encourage the development of young people with autism.
"Mommy's Smile is the perfect starter reader for young children who are on the Autism Spectrum. Sometimes they don't know what the problem is, but by reading this book or having someone read it to them, gives them an idea that they are not the only ones who are going through the Spectrum. It is a great read for young and old alike and I give it five stars!"
