It's Just a ... What?: Little Sensory Problems with Big Reactions! by Hartley Steiner (August, 2018, Future Horizons)
Sensory issues are a difficult challenge for many children and their caregivers. In this picture book, Hartley Steiner shows the experience of Sensory Processing Disorders (SPD) from the point of view of the child, bringing awareness to how they feel in the moment through humor and giving adults the rare opportunity to view the situation from the child’s perspective. Children will be introduced to ways they can begin to ask for and accept help, and adults will learn how to scale reactions during situations of upset. This book covers a large range of situations addressed and resolved. In each scenario the child is having a big reaction, and the adult is able to solve the issue through simple answers, compassion, and humor.
