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.
