"Ashi: In a Class All By Myself, delves into school issues and why autists struggle in a regular classroom. Additionally, the book offers suggestions for helping your child without saying, “Do this…Try that…” ... a great tool for families to share with others. Sometimes our friends and family don’t understand our words, but when they read it in a picture book, it’s easier to understand and less threatening." Jenny Herman, Many Hats Mommy
"We just received a copy...What a fantastic book - a must read for sure! What I really love is the Parent's Page at the back, which would also be a great read for anyone wanting to understand more about autism." Allison Dix, co-founder of Autism Rainbow Day Global Campaign.
"I adore this book. It is beyond amazing. Fun, helpful and full of crucial information for extended family members, friends and aquaintances! This book should be in the home of every family with a member on the spectrum! Priceless!" Kelly Green, AutismHwy
Ashi’s Birthday and Other Dreaded Days combines the life experience of autism parent Annie Eskeldson with the artistic talent of sixteen-year-old Susan Sader. The ladies team up to take the reader on a journey through a typical year’s special days–birthdays, Thanksgiving, Christmas, field trips, and much more. Annie’s writing enlightens the reader to issues that special needs kids face at these special events. Susan’s amazing drawings bring out the emotion. The combination is very effective. Jenny Herman, Many Hats Mommy, Homeschool Convention
