Books by this week’s Amazing Author:
My personal review of Love for Logan:
Author Lori DeMonia writes with a personal passion to spread awareness to classrooms and families about Autism. I love how her first book gives us an introduction to how a family with a child who has an Autism diagnosis may handle certain situations. I think Leah’s Voice is written in a way that allows readers to experience love and understanding for both Leah and the individuals in her family.
Her second book, Love for Logan is written from a sibling’s perspective. Another important book that needs to be out there for children and families! It is an inspirational story that is based on actual events. The story is filled with examples of love that is shared between siblings. I think both titles are important to spread awareness and EMPATHY to all!
