Book Synopsis

Loud noises and social situations make Timothy, an elephant with autism, very uncomfortable.

The challenges of autism make him shake his trunk back and forth to soothe his anxiety. This makes others laugh and tease him.

Timothy's favorite subject, outer space, becomes a way to connect with the other animals in the African Savanna.

One evening, a shooting star changes everything!

Find out how Timothy discovers his own worth and gains the respect of others.

"This story gives a voice to kids who may have a hard time finding their own. Timothy the Elephant gifts autistic children with a better understanding of themselves and others. It also provides caregivers with a helpful tool in getting to know the precious kids with whom they are sharing the story." - Naomi, proud mom of a son with autism
