Rules by Cynthia Lord

I wanted to recommend a fabulous book today.  The book is called Rules by Cynthia Lord. It is recommended for ages 9-12 but I would say it would be great for 9 and older.  I had my two boys read it and both me and my husband read it too.  We loved it.

This book is about Catherine who is 12.  She has younger brother, David, who is autistic. It shares the feelings that she has about life with a brother who is autistic.  It is perfect for siblings of a child who is autistic or has a similar disability.  It helps the kids to see that the feelings they feel are ok and just like Catherines’s.

Catherine also helps her brother out by creates rules for him.  For example, it’s okay to hug Mom but not the clerk at the video store. I also recommend it for those who are trying to understand an autistic child.  Such a great book!  This book has also been given several awards including a Newbery Honor Medal.
