Sissy Gets a Cute Book with a Cuddle in It
The story of how a little girl with autism got a book in her book bag and is now writing her own version of it.
Sissy’s story has sparked interest from parents and other experts.
And she has been recognized by the American Academy of Pediatrics for her bravery.
Sister Sarah H. has a unique way of expressing herself and of sharing stories about herself, and her book, “Sissy the Cute Storyteller,” is a tribute to her.
“I am a writer, a storyteller and a writer with a book that is full of stories,” she said.
Suffering from autism has been tough, but Sarah H.’s book, which includes illustrations by her son and her own life, will be a relief for many parents.
The book, called “Sick,” will be available for purchase online on Monday.
Sick has been written about in The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, as well as on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN television show.
Sylvia H. is a New York-based writer and a contributing editor at the Atlantic.
