So many children today are diagnosed with Autism. The Princess and the Ruby an Autism Fairy Tale is a cute book for kids.
I work with special needs children in an inclusion setting. While we will never point out a child’s diagnosis, children have a way of picking up differences. When children are young, they tend not to notice the differences so much. As they get older, sometimes a good book might help. The Princess and the Ruby an Autism Fairy Tale is a book about a young princess who was born with Autism.
In this fairy tale, the girl loved her plain rocks. The queen did not think she was a princess, as a princess liked expensive stones and she did not. After giving her a test, the queen was sure the Princess was an imposter. However, the king insisted. It was only after time that the Queen agreed and a party was held. The party was not only a party for the kingdom, but if you read the book, you will see how the King embraced the princesses differences and elevated them.
Reading the Book
I love how The Princess and the Ruby an Autism Fairy Tale did not mention the word autism. I like that I was able to read this book as a fairy tale. Children who know about the diagnosis of Autism will understand and relate. The child who is not familiar can see that princesses some in all different forms.
My Overall Opinion
I felt The Princess and the Ruby an Autism Fairy Tale is a very special book. It talks about differences but never puts a name or label on it. I find this book is a great book as a conversation starter. A book with so much power is well worth reading to kids on every level and age group. We are a huge fan of The Princess and the Ruby an Autism Fairy Tale.
I loved reading The Princess and the Ruby an Autism Fairy Tale I am thrilled to give three of you a copy. This book is not only amazing for kids who know kids diagnosed with Autism, but children in general.
