Tisha Campbell-Martin has taken her fight for autistic awareness to the publishing sector in penning a children’s book about the disorder. Tisha was so excited about her first endeavor in the publishing sector that she gave a small description to her blog fans.
“I’m sooooo excited… My first children’s book is now available on Amazon.com It is called ‘My Brother Doesn’t Want to Play’ and it’s about Autism from a siblings perspective… Remember 10% of the proceeds go to my foundation on Autism Awareness… Love you guys,” wrote Tisha.
As the mother of two kids, one of whom was diagnosed with autism several years ago, Tisha knows what it’s like to explain to a child why his or her sibling gets more attention from mom and dad. Campbell-Martin brings that knowledge to the forefront in her ‘My Brother Doesn’t Want to Play,’ which stars a boy who is coping with the reality of his older brother receiving more attention than him. Although envious at first, the little one learns to be supportive of his elder sibling, who is autistic, after getting a few lessons from mom.
Tisha’s eldest son, Xen, was diagnosed with autism at 18-months-old. His younger brother, Ezekiel, was born on September 8, 2009.
