Anything But Typical

Have you ever read a book that you wanted EVERYONE to read? Tonight I have a book title for readers of all ages! It's titled Anything But Typical by Nora Raleigh Baskin.

In this story, twelve-year-old Jason is living a life with Autism. Written from Jason's point-of-view, it gives insight to what the world of Autism is really like. This heart-warming tale is one that will enlarge your heart, and make you understand some of the things that people with Autism do to cope with their disability.

In all my years of teaching, this is the best book I've read on Autism. While it is a fictional book, it has some true situations that I have seen occur in the educational setting with students with Autism.

It is a short book, but one that will touch your heart for the rest of your life.

So, run to your nearest library and check it out!

There will be more reviews to come in the future, so check back for more reviews!
