Filling a void: There is such a need and market for fun, helpful books geared toward kids on the spectrum. Samantha Cotterill has already been getting an overwhelming response.
#ownvoices: This series is very near and dear to Samantha’s heart: She herself is on the autism spectrum, and is very close to others on the spectrum as well.
Not just for kids on the autism spectrum: The introduction to new foods might be more overwhelming for a child with autism than for a neurotypical child, but many kids start out as picky eaters.
Entertaining and useful, too: On the surface, the stories told in this series are fun, lighthearted, and sweet, but they also contain powerful tools for parents with sensitive kids, and a wonderful way for sensitive kids to see themselves.
A proven method: The parent in this book utilizes a strategy for food introduction embraced by Dr. Emily Kuschner, PhD, of the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
More to come: The next two Little Senses books will pub in Spring and Fall 2020.
