A Kind of Spark

Review: This book really took my breath away. Misunderstood, Adeline - a neurodivergent girl - is in a difficult and different place. Seeing the world through her eyes gives the reader the most real, raw and rich of insights into the experiences of autistic children. Everyone needs to read this book.

Review: This beautifully-illustrated picture book highlights the meaning of love through a little girl's adoration of a plant on her way to school. Whispering only words of kindness to it, she makes it grow much to its owner's surprise who enlists her help and learns more than a life lesson from her.
