Look What I Made

For the past few months, I have been trying to pass my love of reading onto my son. He is a good reader and enjoys reading textbooks, but his autism makes it difficult for him to understand the character’s motivations and emotions. Unfortunately, the standardized tests that he takes at school to gauge how he is doing with flexischooling don’t take this into account. I decided that it is finally time to start reading fiction and to encourage him I thought it would be fun to crochet some dolls to go along with his books.
