A story of autism, empathy and kindness written by Libby Scott and Rebecca Westcott, was hidden using the magic of the book fairies this week!
We found some great places in the UK to hide copies of this fantastic book!
About the book:
Endearing, insightful and warmly uplifting, Can You See Me? is a story of autism, empathy and kindness that will touch readers of all ages.
Tally is eleven years old and she’s just like her friends. Well, sometimes she is. If she tries really hard to be. Because there’s something that makes Tally not the same as her friends. Something she can’t cover up, no matter how hard she tries: Tally is autistic.
Tally’s autism means there are things that bother her even though she wishes they didn’t. It means that some people misunderstand her and feel frustrated by her.
People think that because Tally’s autistic, she doesn’t realise what they’re thinking, but Tally sees and hears – and notices– all of it. And, honestly? That’s not the easiest thing to live with. Perfect for fans of Wonder and The Goldfish Boy, this sucker punch to the heart is valuable reading for children and adults alike.
