This book is simple, beautiful, and heartwarming. It's critics feel that it simplifies something that is so complex but isn't that exactly what we need when we are describing what differences these wonderful individuals have? I think the characteristics that the author focuses on are absolutely endearing when describing our furry friends or our children/adults that sometimes struggle in the world. I originally looked at sample pages online at Amazon but didn't truly fall in love until I saw the book in it's entirety. My only wish is that the term 'Asperger' wasn't used but rather autism. I feel that children identified with any type of an autism spectrum disorder would also benefit from the descriptions in this book. I would love to pass a copy out to every child, adolescent and even adult that I know that has been given this label. A must for every bookshelf!
