Free Colouring Book by Temple Grandin

Temple Grandin is an amazingly talented person. She has a real gift with animals and seems to be able to get in touch with how they think and feel.

Temple Grandin thinks in pictures and was diagnosed with Autism well before there was much understanding about what that really meant.

Through her own courage and the understanding of those around her she has become a leading animal specialist and an international spokeswoman for Autism.

To help celebrate a new movie starring Claire Daines that tells the story of the life of Temple Grandin so far, Barnes and Noble, HBO and Project Onward are offering a free downloadable colouring book that tells her story – in pictures.

This is a charming book that has been written by Mary Carpenter and illustrated by autistic artists from the Project Onward initiative.

The story serves to educate children about what it can be like to live with autism, and helps children with autism to know that they are not alone and there are others who understand what it’s like to be autistic.

The illustrations are individually signed by the artists and are clear line drawings, perfect for colouring.

Great for use as an educational tool, at home and in schools, this book offers a lovely insight into autism.

Download a free copy from Barnes and Noble for someone you know who loves to colour in.
