Temple Grandin: How the Girl Who Loved Cows Embraced Autism and Changed the WorldTemple Grandin: How the Girl Who Loved Cows Embraced Autism and Changed the World by Sy Montgomery

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was lucky enough to pick this up from my local library system through Overdrive. My friend, Cheryl, wrote an intriguing review that had me searching it out. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1…

I had hoped to read while listening but the ebook but it didn’t come to me in time. That was okay. It provided my background entertainment while I worked on the charity hats and dolls. The reader, Meredith Mitchell, kept me involved in the story of Temple Grandin’s life.

I have read other books about and by Ms. Grandin. Though this book is for young people, I found it more thorough than the others in covering the aspects of autism, living with it and knowing someone who has it. The author was able to bring this disorder to the understanding that a young person would need.

Something that I felt when reading this book and others about autism is that I think there are levels of this that many of us have. The sensitivities Temple had to scratchy clothing or loud noises or too many people or strong light I can relate to. The inability to connect to others, especially in a crowded room, I can understand, too. Knowing that Ms. Grandin found ways to make her disability work for her in her life gives us all inspiration to see how we can overcome our own problems.

Though this is for children, it is neither a short book nor pablum for babies. I felt there was a lot of depth to the stories told and much to learn for all of us. Please, seek it out and see how you like it.

CWin Post. Is finally out! All the news in one spot! Chris has been working hard on his Paper,li. We are learning from each other at how to capture stories. His stories are more political or top news, with sprinklings of science and entertainment. Mine seems more science, fibro and other health issues, and feminism. I just find it interesting how different our papers can turn out.

CWin Post. Is out!!! I have some news about why it has been days since I posted for my husband’s Paper.li. He now has the paid version AND it is in his own domain name: CWinPost.com  I am a little curious to see how well that works for him. He is more politically active than I am. He is also a newsaholic. I’m not. I must admit that living with him has broadened my horizons in those directions. I am more into Science and Sci-fi. That is what I love to read most, that is what I love to write. I am fascinated by inventiveness of the mind. medical break-through, and yes, scary things that could happen if we don’t keep an eye on these discoveries and inventions.

 

Don’t forget that his blog is Reno-Now.org for more.
