About the Book:
In Jacob Learns to Fly, Jacob is a very special owl. He has special needs and requires unique approaches in learning how to live. He has no interest in flying. He is content with just watching the water gently flow by in the stream under his nest. His sister Geneva finds a way to use his love of water to teach him how to fly. This book is great for siblings and peers of special needs friends. It is meant to help them understand that learning can be quite the struggle for some of our friends. It also encourages them to find unique ways to engage with their special friends. We want to encourage children not to be fearful or shy, but to have extra patience and respect for others that have certain difficulties. Amanda used a gentle artistic style with muted tones to set the tone of the world of autism.
About the Author:
Amanda Russell is a loving and supportive mom whose son has severe autism. She wrote this book with the hope that it would be a conversation starter, among children and their caregivers, about children who have special needs. It demonstrates a simple method that they use to connect with their son. The book tells a beautiful story of finding ways to join someone with special needs in their secluded world, and also includes talking points for caregivers to use to enlighten their child on the subjects of Special Needs and Invisible Disabilities
