My birthday twin is turning 11 this Thanksgiving and loves World War Two.
I bought for him this summer a ginormous coffee table book about the Airplanes of World War Two for every military. ( I think WW1 might have been covered too.) If the book didn’t weigh a metric buttload, his mother ( one of my BFF) said he would carry it everywhere.
He loves planes, tanks and guns. (And wanted to be a German Army Guy - complete with swastika - for Halloween, but has been gently discouraged.)
This boy is high functioning and has been mainstreamed all his life. Most parents and other kids don’t know that anything is ‘wrong’ with him other than he talks slightly monotoned.
I am open to reference books as well as fiction or nonfiction. Zee more German, zee better. Ja.
Aspie is short for Aspberger’s Syndrome, in case you were wondering.
