Some books get read until they fall apart. You don't get out of this house that easily. You get taped up and read again. If you fall apart again, you may get tossed.
But not if you're How Are You Peeling, that rare and delightful picture book whose photos are cuter than many an illustration.
Kids with autism need books about #feelings, and this delightful book has rhymes and produce that more clearly show emotion than the confusing human world.
The creators, Saxton Freymann and Joost Elfers have a number of food photograph books including the board book of Baby Food , but the focus of those is more on the clever creations. Here the text, with its repetition of "How are you feeling?" is of at least equal importance.
I wish it were a board book.
Where's the tape?
Are you or do you know a tween or adolescent with autism who would like to write a book review (one sentence is fine!)? Comment here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Reviews by relatives about a book a kid with autism loves are very welcome too. Thank You!
