"Since We're Friends" is a book about a young boy named Matt with autism. The description of the book is straight from Google Play:
''Matt’s autism doesn’t stop him from having fun! Even when Matt struggles to navigate social situations, his friend is there to help him out. The two boys enjoy playing sports, watching movies, reading books, and talking about animals. Working together, a best friend’s compassion and understanding turn Matt’s frustration into excitement.''
We should be teaching our students about autism, acceptance and respect, and picture books are a great way to integrate that subject with younger students.
