First Review of Spaghetti - a Hit!

I have to admit, I was terribly nervous when I opened Little Pickle Press' site this morning.

The first Friday of every month is a big day for the LPP blog. It's when they feature a review of a children's book - either one of their own, or another title that has caught their interest.

My heart leaped at the first few sentences and when I got to the following section of her review, I shouted to Drew to come and read along with me. (It's always best to share your most joyous moments with your best friend.)

"The story kept me interested and audibly laughing all the way through. I fell in love with Connor's honesty and desire to share his passion with everyone he meets on his journey. I couldn't wait to see what challenge he would face next, from dealing with peers to his teacher in the classroom."

 
Karen Wesley Weaver reviewed Spaghetti and is an Autism Advocate, Writer and full-time Mother to two boys on the autism spectrum, who are now in middle and high school. She blogs about her journey raising them at http://confessionsofanaspergersmom.blogspot.ca/ She also administrates an online support community for Autism and Asperger's Parents on Facebook.

Karen, and her boys are exactly who we're looking to reach with Connor's story. Karen seeing her own sons' journeys reflected in Connor's day, is exactly what I dreamt would happen.

    1. Hey Dani,

      I checked both Karen's blog address and the facebook link on LPP site and neither work! I corrected the blog address when I posted, but didn't realize the facebook one was incorrect too. I've let Cameron know. Thanks for the heads up!

  5. Congratulations on your book. I did fall in love with your 3rd child, Connor. In him saw of both of my boys quirky little personalities. I also plugged your the book and my review on my Confessions of An Aspergers Mom facebook page and my blog. My followers loved it! I hope we connect in the future.

    1. Thanks so much, Karen. That is so awesome. I'll fly over to your site and check it out!

      I'm planning a Spaghetti dinner fundraiser for Asperger Manitoba in February/March. I mentioned this on the LPP site and someone commented that it would be great if there was a flourish of Spaghetti dinners in support of Aspergers/ASD. Seems like a super fun idea to me!

      For the fundraiser Little Pickle Press, is providing gorgeous posters with Asperger Manitoba's logo on the bottom, free of charge and AMI gets to keep the proceeds! Working with Rana and everyone at Little Pickle has been a dream come true.

      I too hope we connect again.
      Take care,
      Jodi
