Isaac the Elephant
Isaac the Elephant might prefer reading quietly by himself to the chaos of a parade, but he's still caring, kind, helpful and brave! Just ask his new friend Maxine the Kitty, who finds out firsthand just how helpful and brave Isaac can be! Inspired by Cheryl Sperry Golke's oldest grandson, Isaac the Elephant is the story of a young boy with autism. As autism becomes an increasingly common diagnosis among children in America, so too should the education of their peers with regard to building and maintaining lasting and meaningful friendships. With vivid illustrations, Isaac the Elephant encourages young readers to celebrate their autistic friends and to recognize their great strengths and valuable qualities.
