The Autism Sisterhood Book Review

I signed up to do a review on The Autism Sisterhood by Michele Brooks. I do not have children who are autistic, but my sister in law has two boys with autism.

I was one of those moms who worried (very much so) about the effects of Autism and the immunization shots. I read many different things and still really do not have an opinion either way. Both of my children did receive their shots and I no longer worry.

Anyway – on to the book – The Autism Sisterhood. It’s a great little book with some great information inside. It’s not big – it’s to the point.

The author, Michelle Brooks states that “this book is short because I know you don’t have much free time to sit without interruption.” “It’s small because I hope that once you’ve read it, you’ll place it in your purse or backpack and pass it along.”

It’s about support, encouragement and hope.

There are many different subjects, but they are only about a page long. Just enough information to get you started and the author just tells it like it is. I mean who has time to read and read, especially if you have autistic children. I love the format of this book and I wish more “help” books were written this way. Short and to the point.

Some subjects include: Celebrating Holidays, Singing Songs and Little Chefs, to name a few. There are many such subjects, but again short and to the point. Each subject comes with a tried and true “sisterhood tip”.

One subject I liked was Indoor Picnic. This one is actually good for all children. Have an indoor picnic with The Very Hungry Caterpillar puzzle. Have different foods and let the children taste them, touch them, smell them and so on.

I would definitely recommend this book if you or someone you know has Autistic children.

I will passing this book on to my sister in law and hope that she will in turn pass it on as well.

You can purchase it on Amazon for $9.95.

“This is a Mama Buzz review. The product was provided by the author for this review.” This did not affect my opinions. My opinions are my own.


I'm a mother of 2 who likes to get involved in too much! Besides writing here I started a non-profit, I'm on the PTO board, very active in my community and volunteer in the school. I enjoy music, reading, cooking, traveling and spending time with my family. We just adopted our 3rd cat and love them all!
