If I leave a book out that I am reading, Dennis will invariably pick it up and want to read it too.
I love this about him for some reason. But no, I don't understand it.
I don't seek out the books he's reading.
We were both gripped by this book.
(Den and I had 2 book marks going at the same time until we were both finished.)
First of all this author is brilliant. Not only for her thinking out of the box, but for the way she tells
about it. This is a page turner story. A very real story, and one of much struggling,
but so FULL of hope. Seriously FULL of hope.
I almost wish the cover didn't say autism on it….instead, I wish this review would be put on the cover:
"THE SPARK is about the transformative power of unconditional love. It you have a child who's
'different'----and who doesn't? ---you won't be able to put it down." Sylvia Nasar, author of A
Every child is 'different.' Every child has his or her quirky way about them. No child just goes through
life like a little robot doing everything we teach him or her to do.
This author teaches how to find the passion in your child. Instead of looking at what he or she is
weak in, or struggling with, her theory is if we focus instead on the strengths of a child, then this child
will be likely comply with learning the other stuff.
Come to think of it, isn't this just human nature?
My sister in law Wendy has been with us for the past few days, and she read this book too while here.
She could barely put it down, and kept saying things like, "This is amazing!!"
I'm now reading this one:
This time I'm keeping it hidden until I finish it.
Just makes my reading time a little easier.
And then Dennis can read it all he wants in a few days.
