This is a book about the power of knowledge, communication, friendship, and courage. Children with autism, depending on their leve...l of need, receive a varied number of services from several therapists by the time they are of school age. These children generally play a passive role; they do not understand why the therapist is doing what he or she is doing. In this book, which is the first in a series, the author attempts to flip the role where the main character learns a basic principle of behavior. Armed with this knowledge, he speaks up against his teacher's deficient classroom management style despite his fears. This child gets empowered when he sees the effect of his message on the teacher's behavior. The author also highlights a few of the potential daily struggles of a student with autism in the classroom, especially, when a teacher does not understand some of these challenges or does not communicate with adequate specificity. read more

Do you ever spend time looking up at the sky, observing the flowing nature of shapes and pictures formed by the clouds? Some call ...this a bit of heaven's sweet essence. This idea of pictures in the clouds may be new to you. Not everyone will see a picture and not everyone sees the same form. Marian has been photographing clouds for many years. The shapes and natural forms have brought her increased insight and spiritual comfort.

It is the author's desire to share this perspective and to inspire young people of all ages to look at the world differently--to see the interconnectedness of all things and to feel the joy of Spirit in all of life. read more
