Trees are amazing, but so are kids!
“We’re Amazing, 1, 2, 3!” is a very nice online book by Sesame Street that sheds more light on the behavior of some children with autism and how they can still enjoy fun in a social setting when their playmates show understanding and are true friends. Elmo is in this story and he helps another playmate, Abby, adjust her approach when relating to Julia, his play companion with autism.
If parents take the time to understand autism and then teach their children to understand, then most encounters and interactions with autistic playmates have a wonderful chance at playing out like this sweet little story.
Arbor Rangers encourages everyone to show compassion, patience, and understanding to all they meet as we together learn about trees and have fun cooperating our efforts to preserve our urban forests. =)
