review 1: Nice story, very well presented. More for gr. 4-8,t I think. Good layout and pictures too. Amazing what people can do with their life when given a chance to shine at their good points. Reminds me of the story of the school where all the animals had to take every subject and pass at everything in order to be graduated (or normal)... Squirrels had to practice swimming and ducks climbing. Temple found a way to do what she was good at and how to meet her own needs regardless of what others thot. She did have the help of some sympathetic teachers/ mentors along the way.
review 2: 3.5 really, and probably higher if autism was a topic more relevant to me. This was interesting and I would definitely recommend it to anyone dealing with autism personally or in t
... moreheir family or friends. This is a book that could give them hope and was easy to understand. It was a biography not fiction so I shouldn't really judge things about Temple's life, but there were times when I couldn't help thinking that coming from a wealthy family makes a difference in treatment options or stuff like that. Also, while I understand all the animal slaughter stuff is important because that's where she found her niche, it may be unpleasant for some readers. less

Definitely geared toward young readers. A bit more information about Temple than the HBO movie.
The four stars is for the Temple Grandin and her amazing story.
Considering for next year's Summer Reading List. J-Non fic.
