This delightfully illustrated “chapter book,” geared for 8-12-year-olds, tells the tale of five family members and their naughty dog (each with a different sensory challenge) and how they get in sync after a tough day. The story itself is in larger print to benefit younger readers. Explanations of sensory processing issues are woven throughout the story in smaller type for proficient readers to linger over at leisure.

Everyone with sensory issues will find a character to identify with. Maybe your child is like Darwin, with sensory over-responsivity. Or perhaps you know someone like Betsy and Filibuster, who are sensory seekers. This book is a must-have for every family challenged by sensory processing problems!
