My DS has been writing and illustrating books with a couple of friends at school. I was thrilled with this already, but today he told me that after he and his friends started producing these books, the other kids in the class liked the idea and began to follow suit. Now the teacher has set up a little library in the classroom of all their books.

This made me happy for so many reasons. Despite the fact that he is a very outgoing and fun kid, I have worried about his friendship making because of his SPD (he tends to invade personal space, touch people too often and too hard) so to see him spontaneously working together with a group of friends on a project like this warms my heart. And to see him playing a leadership role in the class and inspiring other kids to be creative too, well that is just fantastic!
