AUTOGRAPHED - I'm Here by Peter H. Reynolds


Award winning book illustrated and written by Peter H. Reynolds

I’m here. 
And you’re there. 
And that’s okay. 
maybe there will be a gentle wind that pulls us together. 
And then I’ll be here and you’ll be here, too. 

Pure, powerful and deceptively simple, bestselling author and illustrator Peter H. Reynolds reminds us that children—and the friendships they make—can take flight in unexpected ways.

From Goodreads:

"This book teaches about friendship and the value of interacting with people around you. Being alone in your closet and not wanting to come out is the thing many people do at some points in their lives."

"It's a nice way to introduce autism to other children. I love the quotes in the front and back of the book:
'The distance between two people is only as big as you let it be.'
'For the world you may be one person, but for one person - you may be the world.'"

This short film, based on an original story and art by Peter H. Reynolds and produced by FableVision, movingly conveys the loneliness that a child on the autism spectrum often experiences, and the life-changing impact each of us can have when we reach out and embrace them. FableVision created the film for SARRC (Southwest Autism Research and Resource Center).
