LBH: Noelle Gentile signs and discusses, Isla and Lulu

The children’s book “Isla and Lulu” aims to create a more loving and inclusive world for children with special needs, children who are medically fragile and their families.

The story, told through the perspective of Isla’s four year old sister, Lulu, offers an opportunity for young readers to have meaningful and brave conversations about those who experience the world a little differently and their siblings.

One of the main characters in the book, Isla, is on the autism spectrum and has epilepsy. “Isla and Lulu” serves as a wonderful resource for classrooms and families who are working towards raising inclusive children. It also aims to give voice and representation to children with different abilities and their families.

Isla and Lulu comes with child-friendly information on autism and epilepsy to support dynamic conversations after reading the book.
