Charlie makes a splash!  Cover Image Book Book

Charlie makes a splash! / written by Holly Robinson Peete and RJ Peete ; co-written and pictures by Shane W. Evans.


Charlie, a boy with autism, describes what his life is like with his twin sister Callie, who does not have autism, and explains how water--whether in a pool, a tub, or in the aquarium--is like a warm hug, which settles him down and calms his mind, allowing him to focus and cope.
