Buzzings and Tickles
Category: Children’s Literature
Dear children, this book is for you. It is also for your mommies and daddies, grandmas and grandpas… Moreover, we think it might turn out to be interesting for your teachers too.
You might ask, what the book is about? I will tell you right now. The book is about a little boy who is not like other little boys. His name is Mate. He, like other boys, has a mother, a father, a grandma and a grandpa. Just like other boys, he also goes to the kindergarten, and he likes sweets and toys too. However, he perceives the universe differently. He doesn’t like playing with other children very much either. He is different like this because some naughty creatures, Buzzings and Tickles, don’t let him be in peace. Mate has autism.
You might also inquire about autism. What is autism? Here, open the book and you will find out yourself. It might even make you think about some people around you. Hopefully, after reading this book, you will be able to understand better those children who behave differently from the most. You might consider them somewhat strange but we believe that with a bit of trying, you will surely succeed in making friends with them. We wish you good luck!
The illustrations in the book are made by the author and Mate Gakheladze.
