Through the Eyes of Me

Publisher: Graffeg

Meet Kya. Just like most four-year-olds, Kya is full of enthuasism and very adept at wearing out her parents. High on her list of likes are running, jumping, ice cream, books and pulling funny faces in the mirror. Just like other four-year-olds, there are also some things she does not like: loud noises, vegetables and having to sit still being particularly unpopular.

Told in the first person, the book delivers a simple but effective glimpse into Kya’s life, with help from her father (the author). We see that one of the ways in which she might differ from some children is that she has autism. The book explains, for example, that sometimes she has difficulty understanding risks and communicating with friends. Alongside this, it offers some helpful tips to help readers better understand and support children who, like Kya, are on the autistic spectrum, such as using their name when you speak. 

Beautifully effective artwork and uncluttered layout complete this delightful portrait.
