Brody the Lion Meets the Doc: Teaching Children about Autism, Emotions, Acceptance, and Self-Regulation by Kristin Wegner is an educational picture book for young children. Brody's birthday has arrived, but it isn't a day he looks forward to. For Brody, his birthday means his biggest fear comes true. Every year, the day after his birthday, Brody goes to see the doctor and has to have a huge shot! Having autism makes Brody feel scared and he doesn't handle it well. But this year with the help of his friends, Ivy, Jaley, George, and doctor Roo, Brody overcomes his fear and finally feels confident enough to go to the doctor's office. How will Brody get on at the doctor?
Brody the Lion Meets the Doc was a pleasure to read. I enjoy reading books that aim to educate children, and I wasn't disappointed with this one. Kristin Wegner has done an incredible job at creating a book that children will love and learn from. As well as teaching children how to overcome fears, Wegner has depicted the main character as being autistic. This will help children understand the meaning of it and how they can be more accepting of people who have autism. The illustrations by the talented Fay Stayer are adorable and fit the book perfectly. I hope to see more from Kristin soon and wish her all the best.
