My Review

Lisa Jacovsky tackles a topic that is hard for younger children to understand in this picture storybook. It seems as though there are becoming more instances of autism in the classrooms. Let’s Talk would be a great book for teachers to share with their students, especially if there is a classmate who is on the Autism Spectrum. 

The colored illustrations by Blueberry Illustrations depict the text well. There is a lot of text on each page, making this more of a picture storybook than a picture book. I would use the book with 1st or 2nd graders up through 4th graders. 

Let’s Talk! A Story of Autism and Friendship would be an appropriate addition to a K-12 Christian school library or a classroom library. I received a complimentary copy of Let’s Talk! A Story of Autism and Friendship. This is my honest review.
