What color is Monday? By Carrie Cariello Giveaway!

Raising five children would be challenge enough for most parents, but when one of them has been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, the adventures become even more fascinating. In this moving--and often funny--memoir, author Carrie Cariello invites us to take a peek into exactly what it takes to get through each day with four boys and one girl, and shows us the beauty and wonder of a child who views the world through a different lens, who sees the days of the week as colors and wants to know: What Color is Monday?

Carrie Cariello lives in Southern New Hampshire with her husband, Joe, and their five children. She is a regular contributor to Autism Spectrum News and has been published in several local parenting magazines. She has a Masters in Public Administration from Rockefeller College and an MBA from Canisius College in New York. At best estimate, she and Joe have changed roughly 16,425 diapers.

This is a must read book even if you are not a parent. It is such a touching memoir. I laughed and cried and over all I really enjoyed this book! I highly recommend you pick up a copy of it.
You are sure to fall in love with Jack and his mother Carrie. What a great family the Cariello's are!
I was given a copy of this book by the author.
