Book Review: Different by Clarkson
Posted by ~Ang at 2:08 PM
The book is structured in the format of a son and mother telling their personal stories. I found this insightful because the actual struggler (Nathan) was sharing his own internal experiences with us. After that, his mother (Sally) would share some things too.
They were both authentic and honest in their writing. They both spoke of how they experienced God in their personal stories. I found great encouragement in that.
This, by no means, is an instructional book about working with your child's special needs but it is a book of encouraging stories from which we can learn. It is written as if we are sitting across from them while we are drinking coffee and asking questions. This style also made this extremely easy to read for the busy mom.
Though the special needs that were dealt with in this book were different from the ones I deal with daily, there was enough similarities to make this book helpful and hopeful for me. I do recommend it for encouragement.
You can get a copy of this book from Amazon.com here. (aff. link)
I did receive my copy of this book at no charge from the publisher for the purpose of an honest review.
