This book was so helpful for my son who has aspergers. He is taking it to his classroom today and hopefully will be read in his classroom.

Having read "All Cat's Have Asperger's Syndrome", I was curious what another animal-based book would offer. I read it in the store and then burst into tears afterwards. I wish so many teachers with children struggling with Asperger's would take the time to read this book to their classes. The only reason I didn't give five stars is because a few of the sentences came across as argumentative? polarizing? I'm not sure, but still, it's a great book and valuable. I bought it and hope the school feels the same.
