Ruler of the Universe


I bought Corbin a new book, Everybody is Different, for us to read. I want him to be aware of his feelings about having a brother with autism, and realize it's okay to have feelings that might seem "bad".

The book starts right off with explaining autism. It says at one point that a lot of times people with autism behave as if they are in their own world. Corbin stopped me reading at that point and threw his fist in the air and yelled, "I knew it!! I knew Brian was ruler of his own universe!"

I have no clue what he was talking about- I tried to get him to elaborate but to no avail. Regardless, I thought it was a funny little moment.

Haha! Who knows, but just go with it, right? That is definitely a unique and kind of male-centric way to define autism!

How is the book? Does it get the point across and is it good for that age group? I've been looking for something for Aurora.

Christina-
It's pretty good but despite the title- it's only about autism and talks to the siblings (so everything is your brother or your sister)- the title makes it seem like it talks about all disabilities- but it actually has like a 20 word long subtitle....
