Review:

Thanks to Marvie's books, Keisha's Doors: An Autism Story and Taco's Anyone? An Autism Story, my daughter, (age 7) and I have grown closer with the talks that have followed reading them. The book(s) have opened up opportunities for the two of us to have some very frank and deep discussions about what it is like to a) have a son with autism and b) have a brother with autism and has allowed us to share on a level that we really, believe it or not with all of the activism in this house, have not connected on prior to this. She realized from reading these books that she needs to learn to take cues from her older brother and bend to fit his interests to engage him to play with her. Her approach with him over the last month in reading this book once a week has softened even more and her compassion has grown. She is seeing the world a little more through his eyes than just her own, and to view things from another person's perspective is a big lesson in life for anyone to learn, much less a seven year old child. --Shelley Hendrix Reynolds, President , Unlocking Autism

“This is a very simple to read, yet factually accurate story of a child with autism." --Kapila Seshadri, M.D., Associate Professor of Pediatrics, Section Head, Section of NeuroDevelopmental Disabilities, Department of Pediatrics, UMDNJ- Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, New Jersey, December 21, 2004

"It explains some... challenges for a child with autism in such a clear manner for a sibling to understand.” --Lori Hickman, M.S., OTR/L, STARS (Student Therapies and Resource Services), November 4, 2004
