This beautifully illustrated story book is for children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder, severe shyness, social anxiety or selective mutism. In storybook format, a boy is befriended by a talkative child named Ryan. The beauty of this friendship is the acceptance Ryan feels about his friend's lack of speech. It is also a helpful tool for friends of children like Daniel to understand why these children are unable to talk in certain settings.
