Point to Happy: For Children on the Autism Spectrum

Point To HappyImage courtesy of Workman Publishing

When I was researching books for children on the autism spectrum, I discovered Point to Happy:   For Children on the Autism Spectrum.  This book was created by a grandmother, Miriam Smith, who was looking for a book for her grandson who was on the autism spectrum.  To her surprise there were no books specifically for children with autism.  She collaborated with her daughters Afton Fraser and Margo Smithwick and created this wonderful tool for parents to share with their children.

When I received the book, I was pleasantly surprised by its size which could easily sit in a child’s lap.  The pages are thick and sturdy which is helpful for little fingers to turn.  The book includes an attached pointer that can be used to identify the pictures.  The beautiful photographs fill the pages and are simple with no distracting backgrounds, which can be a problem for many children on the autism spectrum.

The book covers many issues that challenge children on the spectrum such as emotions, sensory, common objects and daily tasks.  My son enjoyed the book and identified each picture as he touched the page with the pointer.

I would highly recommend Point to Happy:  For Children on the Autism Spectrum.  It is a great tool for parents to help their children communicate in a fun way.
