About The Author
“Pack artfully takes readers into the amazing world of childhood creativity through poetic words and detailed illustrations. This book uniquely honors the relationships children develop with toys as they navigate the complex social world we are in.”-Dr. Edd Easton-Hogg, Clinical Psychologist
“Autistic children often have difficulty navigating relationships with others. The ability to bond with a favorite toy allows for a unique relationship experience without judgement. This book highlights the importance of that bond. I recommend this book for anyone, but especially those who know or work with someone with autism.”-Celita Eden, Ph.D.
“Parents of an autistic child want to know: ‘What is this going to be like?’ Skacky cleverly demonstrates the answer. Your environment of love will nurture your child’s strengths. The value of belonging is critical. You will probably be surprised at what brings the best out of your child.”-Denise Weiss-Salinas, OTR/L
“I love this book! It gives space for muted voices to be heard in such a beautiful and creative way!
Ryan smiled through the whole thing. I loved all the illustrations as well!”-Nicole Ingold, Parent
