On April 2, 2014, in honor of World Autism Awareness Day, Geek Club Books’ The Mighty League Vol 1 – The Terrible Taunting – A Blackfish Children’s Book app will be available for free on iTunes. The first book app with an autistic character who goes to school and encounters a bully. Suitable for the early elementary school classroom for lessons on being different, discussing autism, and the subject of bullying. A Project Based Learning Unit compliant with Common Core State Standards is available for free at Geek Club Books.
Readers view the world from the character’s unique point of view and discover that he’s not so different after all. Each page has a pop up notebook with age-appropriate information about Asperger’s Syndrome and handling a bully. There are several customizable options including choosing a boy or girl character and record your own narration.
Geek Club Books, autism storytellers through mobile apps, is dedicated to
putting forth positive views of autism for acceptance, understanding and
inclusion. For more information go to www.geekclubbooks.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Special Congratulations to Jonathan Murphy, the developer’s Asperger son, who received the 2014 Temple Grandin Award for his contribution to the autism community through Geek Club Books!
