Title: Andy and His Yellow Frisbee
Author: Thompson, Mary
Published: 1996
Summary:
Andy and His Yellow Frisbee is a heartwarming and educational children's book about a boy with autism. Like many children with autism, Andy displays a fascination for objects in motion. He spins things-coins, dinner plates, and when at school, his yellow frisbee. It's Andy's special talent, combined with a new student's curiosity about his behavior that sets this story in motion. Rosie, the watchful and protective sister supplies background information about Andy and autism, as well as a sibling's perspective. Beautiful watercolor illustrations enhance the story. Recommended for elementary school-aged children, Andy and His Yellow Frisbee is of particular interest to siblings of children with autism, and friends and classmates.
