Review in the blog of the Spanish Autism Confederation
It focuses on how this book tries to raise awareness about the reality of children
with autism. Likewise, it is recalled that the project was awarded in the contest
"People also count", convened by the publisher together with Biblioteca Solidaria,
with the aim of making citizens aware of different social realities
lived by people and collectives in a situation or risk of social exclusion.
