MILWAUKEE, WI, UNITED STATES, October 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Amelia Peace, a Milwaukee resident, wanted to be a published author for over 10 years. She finally achieved this goal with the release of her debut book. Her story was inspired by her 5-year old daughter who has autism. When her daughter was acting out in class, Amelia discovered the school’s lack of inclusion towards students with communitive disorders.
“It’s a beautiful children’s story that shows our vulnerabilities, our strengths, and our compassion for others.” The author described. “It’s not an unconventional concept — Everyone deserves to be happy and feel accepted,” Amelia said in her interview.
Tilly Bird feels alone. She is not happy in school and is distant from her classmates. Tilly’s classmates are enjoying school and are playing well together. But Tilly is not included in the group. The narrator asks, “Why does Tilly Bird shy away?”
The students address their concerns about Tilly. She is described as uncooperative, ill-mannered, and loud. The narrator gives the class and readers an explanation of Tilly’s struggles and social issues.
“This will be a wonderful addition to a preschool or early elementary classroom. It helps kids understand that people with Autism are similar to themselves, they may just express themselves in different ways. The simple language and illustrations are not overwhelming but still provide a clear narrative.”
– Educator, Sarah L., Reviewer
Alone Bird: A Story About Autism ends with wonderful message about autism, friendship, and kindness.
“I read this book with my 10-year-old autistic daughter. It led to some really interesting discussions surrounding how she felt at school. Every school should have a copy and every parent with a neurotypical child should read this together to discuss how people have differences.”
– Mom, Dawn P., Reviewer

The book series is suitable for preschoolers to 2nd grade readers – and sets the foundation for families, educators, and behavioral counselors to have discussions about individuals with autism.
