Autism with Lola:
Playing with Bourbon Badger
Written by Jodie Isitt
Illustrated by Lucy Smith
Lola Rabbit is just like other little rabbits but she sees the world differently. Lola is Autistic. This means that sometimes Lola becomes afraid and upset when she hears loud noises. She often hums to herself and spins around to make herself feel better.
Lola's classmates don't understand what being Autistic is like. It is confusing for the other children, and Lola becomes lonely. But then, Bourbon Badger shows kindness that she has never felt before.
Is this the start of a new friendship? Will her new friend show the rest of the class that being different is OK? And will his kindness help Little Lola to smile again?
