Lucy's Amazing Friend

Children/Young Adult; General Fiction (including literary and historical); (Market)

Lucy doesn’t understand why the new boy in Miss Reed’s class doesn’t like her. “I said hi and he ignored me,” she said. “Lucy, that’s Daniel. He has autism,” Miss Miller responded. “What’s autism?” asked Lucy. From that moment on Lucy works to make friends with Daniel in this bright, upbeat book about autism. Once she succeeds, Lucy becomes determined that the other kids learn to accept Daniel as well. With an estimated 1 in 68 now falling somewhere on the autism spectrum, “Lucy’s Amazing Friend” is just the right book to help children understand that we are all different, and while those differences can be challenging, they also make us each special.
Reviews
Ellen Walker, author of Bringing Up John: One Family's Life With Autism

"Stephanie Workman has opened the door to many budding friendships between children with autism and their peers, by proving this can be a positive experience, in her colorful picture book Lucy's Amazing Friend. This story is an accurate portrayal of Daniel, who lives with autism, and the interesting things he does to provide himself ways to fulfill his need for sensory input. Lucy finds him interesting and develops a friendship that, in turn, shows all the other children just how much fun Daniel can be!"
