My youngest son has Asperger's Syndrome.  I am looking for children's books written for AS children.  I have seen books written about children with Autism and AS which seem to be oriented towards others, explaining why AS/Autistic children react the way they do in certain circumstances. I'm looking for books to read with my son, not others.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

How old?  There is mystery series for middle school kids.  For kids of any age is the book titled something like All Cats have Asperger's Syndrome.  You won't find it here as it has been on my wish list for a while.  I am a SLP and borrowed it from one of my middle school kids who has Asperger's.  It is such a cute book, real pictures.  Let me know the age and I'll get some more titles from work.  If you can email me directly that might work best.

I am on the WL for a book called Ian's Walk.  It is about a child with Autism.  Your son might like it.
