Sometimes I ROAR is the first book in the Brody the Lion Series. Each book celebrates autism while providing parents, teachers, and therapists ways to help children cope with big emotions. Sometimes I Roar depicts an autistic lion cub both enjoying and struggling with his birthday party. We see Brody happily flapping his paws and jumping on his toes but when his friends are late, Brody does not get the present he expects, and guests sing too loudly, Brody melts down. As he roars, Brody’s parents do their best to calm their little cub using mindfulness and co-regulation strategies.

In Brody’s third book, The Shopping Flip, our favorite autistic lion cub heads to the grocery store.
