Charlie Makes a Splash! (Hardcover)
The award-winning team who brought us MY BROTHER CHARLIE present a companion book that celebrates the power of water for those who have autism.
Like many kids on the autism spectrum, Charlie finds solace and empowerment in pools, ponds, sprinklers, visiting the aquarium, and swimming in the ocean. Through his adventures and discoveries, he shows the world that even though he has autism, autism doesn’t have him.
In this beautiful ode to the love between siblings Callie and Charlie, we return to the characters from our award-winning book MY BROTHER CHARLIE, who bring whimsy to everyday fun for all children, while showing readers that kids who may experience the world in different ways can help us see the wonders of swimming to your own rhythm.
