Conceived of, written, and designed for children on the autism spectrum, Point to Happy combines a picture book and a pointer to create a breakthrough in reaching children who communicate best through pictures. Ingenious in its simplicity, it was created by a grandmother, Miriam Smith, and mother, Afton Fraser, for Ms Fraser’s son, a young boy on the autism spectrum. Point to happy. Point to sad. Point to hug. Give me a hug. The parent reads, the child points. It turns reading into a joyful, shared experience. Dozens of friendly photographs are compelling to look at and easy to understand. The text is clear and direct. By pointing to the pictures in the book―moods, activities, everyday objects, the rituals of going to bed and getting ready in the morning―children will learn to convey their wants and needs, their experiences and, most importantly, their feelings. The simple device of the pointer, with its soft, molded hand on a wand―safety-tested and 100 percent nontoxic and PVC-and phthalate-free―begs to be held and used. And using it―the motor task of holding and pointing, again and again―is an effective tool to help a child focus.
  • Pictures are perfect to hold interest of my autistic grandson. Durable hardboard quality for small hands to manipulate. The content addresses staying near mama in the store, something autistic children need reminding of because they love to run off. Overall, a fun interactive book. The long "finger" pointer that is attached helps keep attention focus.

  • I purchased this book primarily for my grandson, who has Autism. He is reluctant to use his finger to point or identify objects. So, this colorful hand pointer offers a great alternative. Attaching it to the book by a ribbon, what a great idea!
    While my grandson is somewhat verbal and when asked will say he's happy. The book's vivid facial pictures give wonderful visual ques of the emotion being expressed.
    Price was great, too. Less than $10.

    P.S. Added bonus: My granddaughter whose 5 likes to use the pointer when playing school.

  • This book has been an excellent tool to help our son (autistic )learn about emotions, joint attention and reference. Pictures are large, layout is clear. It's fantastic.

  • Excellent pictures with practical scenarios on every page. Would even be great for young toddlers who aren't on the spectrum. Quality binding and pages.

  • Great book - doesn't necessarily have to be for children with autism. I am a school psychologist and can see the usefulness of this book with many kids.

  • The mother I gave this to, really liked this book and her son, who is autistic, seemed to enjoy it. His siblings were also happy with it. They are all under the age of 8. I was pleased with the purchase.

  • We bought this for a friend who has a son that is autistic. He said it helped him greatly in working with and understanding his son.

  • This book is adorable! Love the interactive feature of the pointer!
