    My favorite book, that I originally purchased for my 8 year old daughter to understand her brother\’s autism, is called Everybody Is Different by Fiona Bleach. It is also in the ASNC bookstore. This book is written for children (siblings) but I think it is a GREAT tool for anyone who needs a basic explanation about the experiences and behaviors of an autistic person (e.g. grandparents)
