Spaghetti Is Not a Finger Food
(and other life lessons)
About this Item
This deliciously entertaining and humorous chapter book gets top marks for presenting a delightfully quirky day in the life of an eight-year-old boy with Asperger's Syndrome.
Being eight, Connor knew a lot. He knew that Mrs. Winters did not like to be interrupted, but he was sure she would appreciate his fact-finding methods--and who wouldn' t want to know more about geckos? He knew he needed the new library book, "More All About Dogs," more than Jane needed to keep sitting on that stool--and he only nudged her off so he could reach it. On a day when everything seemed to go wrong, Connor turned out to be the only one who could save the school from a dog-caused Code Yellow!
Told from the point of view of a child with Asperger Syndrome, author Jodi Carmichael highlights some of the challenges--and triumphs--of experiencing a day at school from a different perspective.
Heartwarming, funny, and charmingly illustrated, Spaghetti is NOT a Finger Food is the winner of four awards: The Mom' s Choice Gold Award; The Moonbeam Best First Book Award; The Professionals Network Recognition of Merit; and The IBPA Benjamin Franklin Silver Digital Award.
