Synopsis

When Temple Grandin was born, her parents knew that she was different. It wasn't until years later that she was diagnosed with autism, a brain disorder that makes communication difficult. Today, Dr. Temple Grandin is a brilliant scientist and professor of animal science at Colorado State University. Her world-changing career has revolutionized the livestock industry-each year, half the cattle in the United States are handled in cruelty-free facilities she has designed. She is also a passionate advocate for autism, using her experience to prove that people with this disorder can have "normal" lives. To achieve this unprecedented success, Temple used a unique ability: she thinks visually, the same way animals do. Because she thinks in pictures, she can see the world as a cow or a dog or a pig might see it. And so she knows that animals raised for food deserve good lives and should be treated with respect. Now she gives them their voices. A 2013 ALA Notable Book: Children's Recording. A Finalist Honoree for the 2013 Jane Addams Children's Book Award. Finalist for the 2014 Dorothy Canfield Fisher Children's Book Award. Finalist for the 2014 Flicker Tale Children's Book Award. Finalist for the 2012 Cybils Award. A 2012 New York Public Library Recommended Book for Young Readers.
