Grandma's Story Starter Book 3

Grandma's Story Starter Books

I am a grandma to two of the most adorable kids. I will try anything in my power to keep them and my family safe and happy. As a retired art teacher I enjoy paper crafting. I have made several paper pieced books from chipboard. Originally these were just pretty pictures unrelated to each other, but then I realized there could be a use for them.

The older child, my grandson has been diagnosed in the Autism Spectrum disorder. The child is very bright, doing well in virtual school at home using the computer. He reads aloud with expression, while enjoying reading to his little sister. Because he lacks communication skills and doesn't speak much his comprehension is in question.

Each page of my little books could be a way to draw out the imagination of this type of child, getting him to speak about what he thinks is going on in the page. This child could gain the confidence he might lack.
