- Armond Goes to a Party
A perfect book for teaching kids about coping with autism or Asperger's and friendship.
A boy with Asperger’s overcomes his social challenges to help a friend celebrate her birthday in this great book for anyone to learn about coping with autism or Asperger’s.
Armond doesn’t want to go to Felicia’s birthday party. Parties are hard for kids with Asperger's. They're noisy, smelly, and disorganized. Worst of all is socializing with other kids.
But with the help of Felicia and her mom, and other good friends who know what they can do to help, Armond is able to make it through the party and actually have fun. At the end of the day, Armond admits the party was not easy, but he feels good that he faced the challenge—and that he’s a good friend.
A great resource to teach helpful strategies for avoiding sensory overload and connecting with others socially. Or, help children without Asperger's to better understand what it is and how they can help. Simple text and attractive, full color illustrations. Hardcover, 32 pages.
A little background: Armond Isaac taught himself to read when he was three years old and hasn’t stopped since. Besides books, his loves include Legos, acting, and playing the trumpet, and he is a proud Boy Scout. Now in middle school, Armond has been learning to embrace his uniqueness instead of fight it, and he has a small circle of friends with similar interests. He reached out to beloved children’s book author and illustrator Nancy Carlson to do this book because he wants to help every young boy or girl with Asperger’s realize they are not alone in a world where they often feel lonely and out of place.
