"Born during the sunrise--an auspicious beginning--the Azumas' newborn son is named Hikaru, which means 'light.' But during one play date, his mother notices that her son is slightly different from the other children. In this alternately heartwarming and bittersweet tale, a young mother tries to cope with both the overwhelming discovery of her child's autism and the trials of raising him while keeping her family together. This is a story that resonates not only for those whose families have been affected by autism, but also for all past, present, and future parents"--Publisher's website.

Oops Dec 1 comment was for Vol. 1 -- I don't know if that is mea-culpa or system error.

Anyways :) 12/27/2013:

This second volume written by Keiko Tobe does not disappoint. Life continues to hold both joy and challenges for Sachiko Azuma and her autistic son Hikaru.

The sudden death of beloved principal Yoshizawa and transfer of favorite special education teacher Aoki-sensei bring more complications into their life but the journey is filled with hope, resolution and compassion.

I enjoyed learning more about the communication book for Hikaru and learning and coping with life via pictures.

Respect and thoughtful consideration of the disruption "changes" cause for son Hikaru is portrayed with calm and clarity.
