‘Hind’s Hands’ – New Children’s Book on Autism from Umm Juwayriyah

I just heard of a new book coming out called Hind’s Hands, about “a big sister who learns coping skills to befriend and lead her younger autistic sister.” Written by Umm Juwayriyah and her eldest daughter, Juwayriyah Ayed, the picture book sounds like something that will be good for my daughter to read.

With all the problems Lil D is facing of late, I’ve been hit with some hard questions from his younger sister, Amal, like “Will Allah answer my du’as (prayers)?” and “Why does Bhai (brother) hit himself?” and, “Please ask Bhai’s doctors what I can do to help him more.” That kid, she’s one of the good ones, masha’Allah.

I haven’t figured out where to buy this book (don’t see it listed on Amazon, yet). I’ve contacted the author to find out more, and will report back to you when I do.
