The Big Hungry Tree
This book would not have been written, if not for the amazing imagination of my son Harry. After kicking his football into a tree, Harry noticed anther ball stuck. This problem needed to be solved. Many objects were thrown into the tree to knock the balls down. After some time Harry said to me, “Mum, that is a really Big Hungry Tree”. Harry has Aspergers Syndrome, - also called Autism Spectrum Disorder. For more information on ASD, go to www.amaze.org.au ASD does not define Harry, it simply means he sees and thinks about things a little different.
This is our first book in celebrating that unique and fascinating thought process and is indeed Harry’s story - I simply put it to rhyme. JR.
Quote from Professor Tony Attwood. Leading expert on Autism Spectrum Disorder.
"I really enjoyed reading The Big Hungry Tree and know that it will be enchanting, not only for children with difficulties, but will also help with regard to an increase in ASD awareness. This book is not only entertaining, it is also educational from aspects of memory, to different ways of thinking and problem solving. I certainly endorse this book."
