What do we like about it?
- Provides useful strategies for children, in particular for autistic children to help them communicate their likes, dislikes and feelings. What’s fantastic about this book is the ideas don’t come from a ‘grown up’ but from the child’s friend- a white rabbit, making children more likely to engage with the sugggestions.
- Helps children to realise they aren’t alone in finding social situations difficult. Including the child’s difficulties as part of a story helps to normalise them.
- Could help other children to empathise and understand difficulties many autistic children have with social situations by featuring it in a story.
- Simple illustrations and text perfectly compliment the message of this book by being not too distracting or overwhelming for the reader.
