Frog's breathtaking speech : by Chissick, Michael

Publication: London Singing Dragon 2012 . [47] p. : col. ill. ; 22 x 29 cm. 25 Date: 2012

Not only a nice story for kids with cool animals, but also I noticed the kids (7 years and 4 years) using the crocodile breath themselves to calm them, including during getting a line put in at hospital. I would recommend!

Asperger's syndrome : by Rowe, Alis

Marvin's monster diary : by Melmed, Raun

Simple message for young people to "stop, take time to think" delivered in an appealing way. There are some notes for parents at the back of the book to help them teach children with ADHD to stop and think and to be more mindful of their behaviours.

I see things differently : by Thomas, Pat,

Publication: . 29 pages : 21 cm.

I got a perspective on what my son views from this book. Very easy to understand. Almost a basics book for adults. Good for my son to see all kids on the spectrum are different but also similar in some things.

Dirty boys : why bathe? by Strattin, Lisa

We did well showering for a while. I think it needs to be read about once a month as a reminder. However the habit is getting better with him.

Great book for children who are victim of bullying, who have reasonable reading skill. A bit disappointed that it didn't specifically tell the children to walk away from the bullying. Other than that, I like the pictures and the story.

One of the best books I have come across for teaching kids with ASD to understand their ASD.

I feel that this book has a strong religious flavour and strong gender roles that would not be appropriate for many NZ families
