How To Be Human

Wow – just wow… I was so taken back with How To Be Human: Diary of an Autistic Girl effectively demonstrated some of the differences between how other folks might perceive things and how someone with autism might. The little book did a lot to open my eyes. 15 year-old author, Florida Frenz, describes step-by-step the mannerisms to finding her way through the complex world of emotions and perspective. She diagrams her decision-making process outlining areas of following the school rules and making friends and many other life skills.

I’m no medical practitioner and fortunately don’t have immediate family connections to autism… so as an “outsider” on the topic, I found How To Be Human to be very insightful. I particularly enjoyed the diagrams as it made the material visual for understanding better. I can only imagine how helpful this book might be for parents struggling to understand their autistic child or even a sibling. Children with autism might find relief in knowing that someone was successfully able to articulate many of the emotions, processes and sensitivities they too are experiencing.

Knolly Nibbles was a brand represented at Blogger Bash 2016. We were excited to be introduced to this company for this #sponsored post where we received product for review. As always, the opinions expressed herein are strictly my own.

Knolly Nibbles 2As we approach back-to-school and the frenzy of finding the perfect sneakers to match the awesome wardrobe… and listen, I have a little fashionista on my hands and a healthy respect for trendy fashion… but at the end or rather beginning of it all, our children need to feel warm and welcome just being themselves. I’m not saying skip on the fashion, its a terrific tool for self-expression but at the same time a larger message of self-contentment should ring loud.

That’s where Knolly Nibble’s story of being a tail-less mouse really fits. After searching and trying on different tails she learns she is awesome just as she is. What a wonderful way to embrace the upcoming school year. And what an awesome message to carry through the school year. Knolly Nibbles is an interactive story app, available for $2.99 this Wednesday (Aug, 17th) at the App Store.
