Armond Goes to a Party (hardcover)
A book about Asperger’s and friendship
Nancy Carlson and her friend Armond Isaak 
Armond Goes to a Party (hardcover)
Armond doesn’t want to go to Felicia’s birthday party. Parties are noisy, disorganized, and smelly—all things that are hard for a kid with Asperger’s. Worst of all is socializing with other kids. But with the support of Felicia and her mom, good friends who know how to help him, he not only gets through the party, but also has fun. When his mom picks him up, Armond admits the party was not easy, but he feels good that he faced the challenge—and that he’s a good friend. A great book for anyone to learn about coping with autism or Asperger’s.

“With help from her coauthor, a middle schooler with Asperger’s syndrome, Carlson explains why a child with a spectrum disorder might be reluctant to attend a friend’s party. Yet with some peer understanding and adult assistance, the challenge can become an opportunity to have fun as well as be a friend . . . Both Armond’s distress and his relief and satisfaction are likely to move young audiences toward increased empathy for others with mental or physical differences.”—Booklist

“An accessible life-skills guide about friendship for children with autism spectrum disorders. This optimistic story is a worthwhile purchase for libraries.”—School Library Journal
