"What Color is Monday" by Carrie Cariello



Book description from Carrie Cariello's website

Raising five children would be challenge enough for most parents, but when one of them has been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, life becomes a bit more chaotic, a lot more emotional, and full of fascinating glimpses into a unique child’s different way of thinking. In this moving memoir, Carrie Cariello invites us to take a peek into exactly what it takes to get through each day juggling the needs of her whole family. Through hilarious mishaps, honest insights, and heartfelt letters addressed to her children, she shows us the beauty and wonder of raising a child who views the world through a different lens, and how ultimately autism changed her family for the better.

I have been reading "What Color is Monday" and find it very interesting and insightful.  I really like how this Author explains Autism and helps the reader to understand it better.


World Autism Awareness Day on April 2 is a time to shine a bright light on autism as a growing global public health priority. To commemorate this, Autism Speaks started the Light It Up Blue (#LIUB) autism awareness campaign.

  1. Sounds like a very interesting book, especially because it's written by a mom 'who knows'. Thanks for sharing. I will be on the lookout for this one.

  2. I am learning a little more about autism since a young family moved in next door. They have two precious boys, a 1 1/2 year old and a five year old who is on the spectrum. In spite of locks everywhere and constant supervision, he managed to get out a window and go exploring. Our local police dog found him at Walmart in the toy department. Very, very scary.

    1. I'm so glad they found the little boy safe! Its so scary when kids with autism do not understand danger and start exploring.
