Roar Like A Lion is a chapter book written for all ages.  The story introduces the reader to Missy Barrett who has autism.  She takes a trip to the zoo with her older cousin Alana and opens up about a problem she is having at school.

The book discusses the challenges that people with autism have to face.  Throughout the story Missy talks about her love of animals and how she thinks animals could have autism but don’t have to struggle with being bullied.

This book is a great story to teach children the challenges of autism and how bullying affects people.

Roar Like A Lion was written by Elyse Bruce who has also written Missy Barrett Adventures, Missy Barrett Conversations and Missy Barrett Year in Review.  For more information about Elyse Bruce’s books please go to
