The Books Frisky Readers Loved In 2011
The Wisdom of Sam by Daniel Gottlieb, PhD.
I just got done with this book recently, and it is seriously the most heart-warming book I've ever read -- The Wisdom of Sam.
Words cannot even begin to describe how this book made me feel. Sam and his "Pops" go through a few challenges throughout their lives, as Sam is autistic and Pops is a quadriplegic. Sam sees the world in such a beautiful, untainted way, and Daniel (Pops) writes about that. Daniel makes the reader realize that children see the world in a beautiful and thoughtful way. Sam helps us, and his grandfather, realize many important ideas that most of us don't realize until we're quite older, and Sam is only 8! I cried a few times reading this, because of how touching it is. I seriously would recommend this book to everyone. It is a book that in my opinion, everyone can learn something from. -- Kalindy
