Best Read of 2016 (thus far)....

A Boy Made of Blocks

A Boy Made of Blocks

By: Keith Stuart

Genre: Adult Fiction

Pages: 400

Published: 2016

Read: June

5 out of 5

I wanted to read this book because I have a stepson with ADHD who is obsessed with Minecraft. I thought it may be a good book. Boy, was I wrong - It was an amazing book! A father has a difficult time understanding and communicating with his son, Sam, a 10 year old with autism. It's through the game, Minecraft, that Alex is able to enter his son's world and learn how Sam works. Not only is this book inspirational, but it also teaches us that not all video games are bad for children to play. While this is a fictional story, the author has his own autistic son, and it is evident that he writes not only with research, but also his own experiences. Anyone who has a child, works with someone, or knows someone with any type of learning disability MUST read this book!
