Meet Bobby the Buzzlebee
April is Autism Awareness Month, an important time to increase knowledge, awareness and understanding of autism, which affects at least one in 59 children in the US, according to the CDC. We want to share a very special way that families can begin to talk about this.
Kristin Selby Gonzalez is the President of Autism Hope Alliance and has written a delightful children’s book about acceptance and individuality, which was inspired by her son Jax, who is on the autism spectrum. Jax happily uses The Listening Program® and has done so for most of his life.
Meet Bobby the Buzzlebee shows us all that it is okay to be different than everyone else. He celebrates his uniqueness and is very happy in his own world. It is a story that all will love to read again and again, as they shimmy three times to the left, shimmy three times to the right and then circle three times. Readers will discover that the world is made up of many who are not bumblebees, but instead are buzzlebees.”
This beautifully illustrated book will help teach children that it is both interesting and important to learn about people who might seem to be different. Because it does this without ever using the word “autism”, it can absolutely be used with kids with and without an autism spectrum diagnosis. Indeed, the differences among us can be quite wonderful.
What a great gift this would be for any young child in your life! Order here.
