About The Book.
The Stewie BOOM! series from Nothing But The Truth Publishing makes parenting fun. Through these engaging picture books — with parent tips at the end of each book — author Christine Bronstein empowers families to tackle parenting issues with fun and ease.
The latest book in the series, Stewie BOOM! and Princess Penelope: Handprints, Snowflakes, and Playdates (released April 2018) shows readers how children and families can embrace differences and it also gives parents the tools to help facilitate successful social interactions between children with ASD and their typical playmates.
“If they were represented as a group, people with disabilities would be the largest minority group in the US and they are very underrepresented in the world of publishing. These are the voices I like to focus on and empower through my work as an author and as a publisher.”
