Book Review - And You Can Love Me: A Story for Everyone Who Loves Someone with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) by Sherry Quan Lee plus $25 Amazon / Paypal Giveaway!



And You Can Love Me is a story for everyone who loves someone with ASD (autism spectrum disorder). It is the fictional story of Ethan, a nonverbal autistic child, based on the author's observations and experiences with her grandson. The bounce of a ball is not only a metaphor, but also how the author imagines that the child is releasing his innermost physical and emotional challenges. It is a love story that can be recognized by parents, caregivers and teachers; a story that embraces Ethan, a nonverbal child, who may never/or not yet be able to write his own story, yet he lives it every day and tells it by his actions and by bouncing a ball -- any ball, any size, any color.

And You Can Love Me is also a picture book that a child with ASD may, in some way, recognize within himself/herself. It doesn't try to explain, define or even educate; it is merely Ethan's story - the story of one particular nonverbal autistic child; one of the many stories that will add to the diversity of ASD stories.

ACCLAIM FOR AND YOU CAN LOVE ME
"As a mother and grandmother, this story speaks to me about the power of unconditional love we bring to any situation. This book is an excellent resource for adults who have a child or grandchild with autism. It acknowledges the different ways a loved one with autism may communicate and reminds me that we love completely. As a former special education teacher, I am able to keep sharing with people, through this story, about the wonderful diversity that we see in the world. Everyone has gifts."
--Deb Holtz is a former special education teacher, a current end-of-life doula and a mother and grandmother.

"In And You Can Love Me, Sherry Quan Lee gives us the world of Ethan, a little boy with autism. Although Ethan is mute, his daily routine of bouncing a ball and expressing his needs, as well as his interior life, are revealed through simple sketches and lovely lines, like Today I am another year of being me. A welcome and wonderful addition to the as-yet-tiny body of work about children with autism, And You Can Love Me is a beautiful, profoundly moving book."
--Alison McGhee, New York Times bestselling author of many books for children and adults.

Our book review
After looking through the world through Ethan's eyes, the little boy in the story who has ASD (autism spectrum disorder), I felt that the authors use of simple, cute pictures along with his written thoughts,  showing what he wants which he cannot put into words, is a really great way to explain and demonstrate how the condition affects people. They demonstrated what every child requires from a lovely cuddle to being treat as normal, as the child should be the most important factor and not the condition they have. The drawings and illustrations are open to interpretation, so by looking through them with a child and asking questions about what they see is a much better way of educating both reader and child. Based on the author's own experiences with her grandson, she has taken a lot of care to produce this excellent short book to explain how and why this condition can affect a young child, and if you follow their wish and take time to understand their signs and gestures you can total enhance their lives. A must for anyone who lives with, or knows someone with ASD.
