I am writing to you as I am curious to sound out your interest in reading and perhaps reviewing one of our new books Robin and the White Rabbit (http://www.jkp.com/uk/robin-and-the-white-rabbit.html) for the Teachers College Record. It is a picture book that helps children with autism or communication difficulties who struggle with social isolation find a way to communicate with those around them. The book serves as a tool to guide children through the process of using visual communication cards in order to express and understand their thoughts and feelings.
This will be extremely valuable information for parents and teachers, and will enable the child to use a new form of communication. The story also includes themes of friendship, encouragement and affection, and can be used to explain the world of autism to typical peers.

You can find out a little more about the author and the background behind the book from this blog entry if you like: http://www.jkp.com/uk/robin-and-the-white-rabbit.html
It is a charming book with real scope to help isolated children feel included and understood, so I really want to get it some coverage. If this sounds like something that would interest you then do let me know, and I can arrange for a copy to be sent over to you.
I look forward to hearing from you.
