April is Autism Awareness Month

Good morning!

As some of you may know, April is Autism Awareness month. In honor of this worthy cause, Cynni from Uniflame Creates has started the Autism Awareness Reading Challenge.

Because we've been fortunate to have so many great followers who visit our blog, we wanted to do our part and help spread the word about this awesome challenge!

Here are the deets:

The Rules:
- The challenge runs from April 1st till April 30th.
- You only have to read one book that has something to do with autism.
- Write your thoughts on a blog post and leave the link in a comment on the original post (linked above).  {Cynni will edit this post throughout the challenge to add the links.}
- Sharing this post is appreciated because Cynni would like to reach as many people as possible and hope that they will participate :)

- A Friend Like Henry by Nuala Gardner. About how a Golden Retriever changed a boy with autism.
- With the Light by Keiko Tobe. This is a very thick manga for adults that covers the challenges a family faces when their son is autistic. It also tells a bit about how this is handled in Japanese society.
- The curious incident of the dog in the night-time by Mark Haddon. An enjoyable novel with an autistic boy as narrator.

Of course there are plenty more books on the subject but these are some books that Cynni has read and enjoyed.

Mid-April there will also be an autism related giveaway, but more on that later :)
So if you are interested in participating, please head over to Uniflame Creates and sign-up.  Spreading the word about this challenge is also appreciated :)

Have a super day kids!
