Jasmine’s World Of Autism: At The Seawall by T. Lynn Lewis

Jasmine’s World Of Autism: At The Seawall by T. Lynn Lewis

The team at Special Needs Book Review is excited to introduce you to one smart and busy mom from Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada. T. Lynn Lewis has written, illustrated, and self-published her children’s book Jasmine’s World Of Autism: At The Seawall.  Now comes the “busy” part! Ms. Lewis and her husband are raising four children. Brothers Michael, Wyatt and Jimi all have autism and are non-verbal. Jasmine, their 12 year old daughter who does not have autism, is the child in her mom’s book sharing her story about living with three autistic siblings who do not speak.

On Ms. Lewis’ Facebook page she wrote, “Jasmine’s World Of Autism: At The Seawall is a picture book which helps raise Autism Awareness in children, in a fun and entertaining way. It takes place along the seawall of Stanley Park in Vancouver, British Columbia.”

In an interview with Catherine Urquhart Global News Hour at 6 Health Matters we learn that Lynn’s three sons, who range in age from nine to 11 years old, need an intense level of care and likely will never be self-sufficient. At one time mother Lynn Lewis and her husband had to quit their jobs to care for their sons.

We thank Lynn for her guest post and wish her family well.

Jasmine’s World Of Autism: At The Seawall 

Adventures with Three Autistic Siblings

Description of the book:

Jasmine’s World Of Autism: At The Seawall is about the adventure of a girl, Jasmine, and her three nonverbal, autistic brothers, Michael, Jimi and Wyatt.  Jasmine, along with her brothers, takes the readers on a ride as they have fun exploring the seawall, while they learn valuable lessons.

Reasons the author wrote the book:

Her three autistic sons, along with their sister, inspired her to write, illustrate, and self-publish the book Jasmine’s World Of Autism: At The Seawall.  Which is a picture book that promotes inclusion and helps to raise Autism Awareness in children. “I’d like to see Jasmine’s World Of Autism: At The Seawall go into schools so that young people can learn what it’s like with a disability and that everyone can be fun, creative, and great to be with.”

Target Audience:

Jasmine’s World Of Autism: At The Seawall is written for children in Kindergarten to Grade 3 to build a greater understanding about individuals with disabilities.

 Page from T. Lynn Lewis' book Jasmine’s World Of Autism: At The Seawall Adventures with Three Autistic SiblingsExcerpts from Jasmine’s World Of Autism: At The Seawall:

“My three brothers have autism. They are non-verbal.  Which means they cannot speak.”  “They are great to be around.  My brothers and I have so much fun.  I wonder what adventures we will think of today.”

“Our mommy and daddy have brought us to the seawall today for a walk.”

“A seawall is a wall constructed to prevent the sea from eroding the land around it.  Which gives us a path to walk or bicycle around the water.”

“This is the port.  A port is a place on the coast where ships can dock to transfer cargo and people from one country to another.”

“These are seaplanes.  A seaplane is an aircraft capable of taking off and landing on water.”
