  • Well-crafted story

    Reviewed by Amy Louise Hill for Readers' Favorite Understanding Oscar by Jade Chapman is an informative and beautiful story for children. The book shows brothers Banjo and George getting to understand their other siblings, Oscar and Nala, who each have autism, but not in the same way. Oscar can't talk and sometimes unintentionally upsets and annoys his brothers, but that's because they don't understand how Oscar is different, or why. Nala on the other hand can talk, is sensitive to loud noises and bright lights, and likes things done in a particular way. The story progresses and eventually, Banjo starts to look at Oscar differently and begins to understand him and his way of being. If you need a helping hand when it comes to explaining autism simply and effectively, then purchase a copy of this outstanding book; Understanding Oscar. Talented author Jade Chapman has done an amazing job of showing and explaining autism in a way younger children will understand. The story is relatable to real families who have one or more children with autism, and how it can affect their siblings/other family members. This book is well-written and includes perfect examples of how to educate people, not just children, on how autism can be different in everyone, and how to interact with them. Through personal experience, I have learned about autism first hand, and until that point, I didn't understand it and what it meant. If I had had a book like Understanding Oscar, I would have been greatly informed and prepared for the condition. I can't recommend this book enough as I found it to be extremely beneficial, and the illustrations will be a big hit with young ones! So even if your family doesn't include a member with autism, please still educate and inform your child so that they can grow up with an understanding of it. Amazing work, Jade, keep it up!

    Thanks for your feedback!
