"I pray that the book will be used as a tool to connect to children who understand Timothy and can learn that they are a unique and special creation, despite their differences,"
"This story gives a voice to kids who may have a hard time finding their own. 'Timothy the Elephant' gifts autistic children with a better understanding of themselves and others. It also provides caregivers with a helpful tool in getting to know the precious kids with whom they are sharing the story." – Naomi, proud mom of a son with autism
Timothy, an elephant with autism, is very uncomfortable around others. Loud noises and social situations make him cringe. The challenges of having autism cause him to shake his trunk back and forth to soothe his anxiety. But all his shaking makes others tease him and laugh. Timothy loves to look up into the sky. One night, a shooting star changes everything for him! See how one elephant discovers his own worth and gains the respect of others.
