A children’s book presenting the different struggles that kids, who are diagnosed with autism, deal with everyday.

These little books are part of a series of 30 books that will explore the different levels of the Autism Spectrum. Being an autism dad myself, I have been inspired to show our youth what autism is all about. To my knowledge, there is close to no children’s book that talk about autism. This series has the target market of kids between the ages of 5 to 8 years of age. The plan is to have this book available throughout the country within a year, so that all kids get to learn about autism. The book is 7 inches by 7 inches, has a glossy cover and contains 26 pages. It is available in both official languages.

My friend Sam goes to the movies

In this book, Sam has a meltdown in a movie theater because of all of his surroundings on which he has no control. This problem prompts mom and dad to find a solution to watching movies in a theater. That is when they discover the sensory friendly screenings.

Both, Sam and his parents, can now rest easy in the theater as they know that there are no elements that will trigger a meltdown in the theater. This book is based on a real experience by the author and his son.

The books are available on amazon.ca and amazon.com.

Finally reaching the final steps of publishing book number 5. This one has been a tough one to finish as illustration number 2 took me a while to color as there are so many elements showing in it. Also, while in the midst of production, my business got busier as we got closer to Christmas.

But, I am proud to say that all illustrations are done, covers are done and they are currently being reviewed by Renée so that everything will be perfect.

Thank you so very much for your support and please share this story as it will reach a lot of people and help me spread the word about these books. I really want to make these books available in all the schools, hospitals, kindergarten and autism centers in the country.

I am looking forward to the launch of this book as it talks about the importance of making specific changes so that our kids and people on the spectrum get to have the same experiences as the majority.

Looking forward as well to your comments and testimonies of this book series and how it affected your child. Please leave me a comment that I could use to feature on this site, if you please. Reach me here.

Thank you, the release date will be posted shortly.

It is with great pleasure that I can now confirm that Assomption Life will be funding the My Friend Sam book series project. With their help, I will be able to keep going and spread Autism awareness in every household, schools and hospitals in the country.

Thank you so much for your help Assomption Life. You have given me wind underneath my wings.
