5 lovely children’s books about autism

As it’s children’s book week, we thought we would share some children’s books about autism. These books are mainly used to help explain the condition to siblings but could be used in schools to explain autism to friends or classmates too.


my brother is different1 – My Brother is Different: A Book for Young Children Who Have a Brother or Sister with Autism

by Louise Gorrod (Author), Beccy Carver (Illustrator)


This book provides an insight into the world of a child with classic autism.
It does a great job of simplifying things for the neuro typical child who has a sibling with the condition and finds it hard to understand them. However, it should be noted that this book is not really suitable for the child whose brother or sister is on the higher end of the spectrum e.g. Asperger’s Syndrome. This book could also apply to a child with speech and communication difficulties not just autistic children. It really is a great book to own and extremely useful when trying to explain what life is like for a child with S & L difficulties.
