Book Review- Sensitive Sam

Sensitive Sam by Marla Roth-Fisch

I found this book the other day in the Children's Department of our local library.  I was so excited to find out that a book all about sensory processing disorder  had made it to a small town library and was simple enough for even a child to read.

Sensitive Sam is a story about a young boy dealing with the sensory challenges of everyday life.  It was the winner of Creative Child Magazine's Book of the year in 2009, and does a nice job simply explaining a variety of sensory challenges and providing a brief look into strategies such as a sensory diet and occupational therapy.

  1. Glad to see you found Marla's book! It is a great read -- and I LOVE the fact that Sam finds help through OT -- it gives children in OT a really good positive message about how they will feel better.
