In the spirit of understanding and raising awareness about people around us with autism, especially children, this shopkeeper recommends the series of graphic novel by Tobe Keiko, “With the Light: Raising an Autistic Child”.
Translated from Japanese into English, the 8-volume Manga deal with a young couple coping with the discovery that their infant son is autistic.
“In the alternately heartwarming and bittersweet tale, the young mother tries to cope with both the overwhelming discovery of her child's autism and the trials of raising him while keeping her family together. This is a story that resonates not only for those whose families have been affected by autism, but also for all past, present, and future parents.”
The complete series is available in store.
