Product Details
An 8-year old girl decides to make a list of all the things she likes and dislikes about dealing
with her autistic brother, and in doing so realizes that she has created A Manual for Marco.


"Through her genuine and caring accounts about growing up with an older,
autistic brother, this 8-year-old also shows her love for her sibling who is special
but sometimes does things that are not-so-special. I highly recommend this book
written with sensitivity and beautifully illustrated."

--Lorna d'Entremont, M.Ed., Special Needs Book Review


"Shaila Abdullah proves to be a great ambassador for autism, using explanations
and warm, welcoming illustrations in A Manual for Marco that give a complex
condition a simpler explanation."

--C. Hope Clark, Author of The Carolina Slade Mysteries and The Edisto Island Mysteries


"A Manual for Marco is a welcome addition to children's literature that will help
in introducing the condition of autism to young people and providing information
that will enable them to understand a little more about it so that it will not seem
so scary."

--Wayne Walker, Home School Book Reviews
