Very proud to announce that a new children’s book is now available, featuring my illustrations. Written by a lovely lady in Toronto, Donna Koffman shares the story of her autistic grandson and his best friend, with help from her co-author Dr. Lawrence Segel.
Kooper’s tale gains its origins from the real life difficulties that face her grandson Reese, who has severe non-verbal autism. Not understanding the world as we do, Reese has no concept of the dangers that can await him when he runs off. All he wants is to run, play, and be free to explore. But busy roads, unseen hazards, and getting lost are all potential threats. What Reese needs is a friend who understands, and can help him in that very special way that only a highly trained professional knows how – and that’s where Kooper comes in.
The story is told in a fun, engaging way, and teaches young children what Kooper’s role is as a service dog, and what that means for Reese and his family. With plenty of bright and colourful pictures to help tell the story, Donna and Dr. Segel hope to educate, inform, and warm hearts with their wonderful book.
