Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 097891824X, Hardcover)

The world of autism is one that few understand. The condition comes in many forms, and those affected exhibit a wide range of personality traits, some of which make social relations daunting. The Friendship Puzzle helps young readers learn about accepting and including their friends and classmates with autism. Mackenzie Mackabee is going to school at Brook Acres Elementary. Mackenzie loves to make new friends, and she's very excited when she finds out there is a new boy at school named Dylan. But when her attempts at befriending him fail, she goes to her mother for advice. Together they determine to solve this “friendship puzzle.” As she sets out to learn how she can be his friend, Mackenzie discovers that friendships come in many different forms. This book is lively, upbeat and sends an encouraging message about the importance of friendship and inclusion. The activity guide makes the book especially useful for educators and parents.

Mackenzie wanted to make friends with the new boy in class, but he doesn't respond as she expected, and she doesn't understand why until she learns about autism.
