'Waiting for Hugo' by Amanda Niland is a book that explores notions of diversity and difference through a story suitable for 3 to 7 year olds. The central character is a young boy who has an obsessive interest which dominates his life and that of his family. This is a trait often present in children who have an Autism Spectrum Disorder. The story is narrated by Hugo's older sibling, who grapples with acceptance of her brother's eccentricity. Hugo's obsession and consequent skill with numbers brings rewards for him and his sister, so that the story ends positively, celebrating Hugo's unique abilities. AUTHOR: Amanda Niland, as well as being a children's author, is an early childhood teacher, lecturer and researcher with wide experience in working with young children with disabilities. She currently works part-time as an early childhood and music educator at an early intervention centre. Her work includes running family music and playgroups, and conducting research into inclusive practices in early childhood education. She believes very strongly in the power of children's literature to build understanding of difference and disability.
