Read full description of the books:
Lucy doesn’t understand why the new boy in Miss Reed’s class doesn’t like her.
“I said hi and he ignored me,” she said.
“Lucy, that’s Daniel. He has autism,” Miss Miller responded.
“What’s autism?” asked Lucy.
From that moment on Lucy works to make friends with Daniel in this bright, upbeat book about autism. Once she succeeds, Lucy becomes determined that the other kids in the class learn to accept Daniel as well.
With an estimated 1 in 68 children now falling somewhere on the autism spectrum, "Lucy’s Amazing Friend" is just the right book to help children understand that we are all different, and while those differences can be challenging, they also make us each special.

Stephanie Workman first discovered her passion for writing at age fifteen, when her high school English teacher submitted one of her poems to the 21st Century Poetry Journal—and it was published! Stephanie went on to earn her BFA in Writing, Literature and Publishing at Emerson College and then interned at MTV Films, where she wrote script coverage. Kirkus Review hailed her first picture book, Lucy’s Amazing Friend, which was inspired by her husband’s high school friendship with a classmate living with autism, as “sympathetic and triumphant.” She is currently working on the second installment in the Amazing Friends series, Not So Truthful Timmy, about a boy who does not know the difference between make-believe and lying, as well as on her first novel. Stephanie is an active member of the Coalition of Children’s Book Authors, which donates books to needy children in Africa. She lives in New Hampshire with her husband, Tim.
