Adult librarians are like lazy bakers: their patrons want a jelly doughnut, so they give them a jelly doughnut. Children’s librarians are ambitious bakers: ‘You like the jelly doughnut? I’ll get you a jelly doughnut. But you should try my cruller, too. My cruller is gonna blow your mind, kid.’

Austism Spectrum booklist

westwoodlibrarykids:

Hey Everyone,

Thanks for all the love for our Autism Spectrum Disorders booklist! I’ll be updating it again in a few weeks when we get a bunch more new resources in and I’ll be sure to post the updated list.

Also, if you have any favorite books on the topic, either for kids, parents or just in general we are always open to suggestions!

Here is to a successful month of raising awareness!
