All Cat's Have Asperger Syndrome is a picture book by Kathy Hoopmann. It's not just for kids, though. Parents, family, friends, cousins, classmates, anyone who is neurotypical and who knows someone on the Autism Spectrum, will learn a little something from this book. It's a great introduction to what it's like for kids (and their parents) who are on the "high functioning" end of the spectrum. I think it would be a good discussion starter for classrooms and even for families. Also, some people who suspect they might not be so neurotypical will have some eye-opening moments.
Kathy Hoopmann uses gorgeous photographs of cats to describe some of the feelings and behaviour of a typical Asperger's kid. I think this could also be used with kids on the Spectrum, to see they share things in common with other kids, and to discuss which of those things about themselves are challenging, and which they are comfortable with. Not all kids are going to behave the same way, but it's a good starting point.
I love this book. Five stars from me.
Kathy also has a book called All Dogs Have ADHD.
