Following Ezra – A Book for all Fathers to Read!

About the Book

Ezra Fields-Meyer was diagnosed with autism when he was three years old. He obsessively lined up plastic dinosaurs, didn’t like to play with other children, and avoided eye-contact whenever possible. When he was diagnosed, his doctors were not confident Ezra would ever learn to read. Today he is 15 and, in two months, he will be the published co-author of a children’s book withNew York Times bestseller Tom Lichtenheld. Ezra’s journey from diagnosis to his bar mitzvah, full of humor, challenge, love and understanding was documented by his father, Tom Fields-Meyer in this book.

 

1 in 110 U.S. children are diagnosed with some form of autism. It is a common diagnosis and there are many books about parenting an autistic child, but Ezra is an incredibly unique boy and Tom Fields-Meyer’s story is anything but common. This book is a fascinating look at what an autistic child can do when given the chance to find their own way.  More than an opportunity to talk about autism, Tom Fields-Meyer’s book is a touching, funny, and amazing story about an inspiring young man.

 

My Take on the Book

This book was a great testament to fatherhood and the love and laughter that can surround this journey between father and son. The book was very well written and provides a heartfelt account of the journey that both father and son were on. along the way. While I do not know the author personally, I have to say that I was impressed by everything that the author went through to help his son become the young man he is today. 


The story is motivational and inspiring and as a father myself, I can only hope that if placed in the same situation, I would do the same as the author did for his own son. Though this book I am reminded that every child needs a parent who supports them through everything and that with this support they will be able to fly to areas unimaginable.

 

You will find yourself both laughing and getting a bit choked up at times in this book, but overall you will leave the book satisfied and happy to have been introduced to a great father and son duo!
