Around the World with Moby is about an awesome 8-year-old-boy with autism who suffers from travel anxiety. Moby is always scared to explore new things or go on a vacation. His parents were concerned that Moby is missing out on many new learning experiences. So they decide to take him out on a short vacation to Minneapolis, Minnesota. A trip that includes a 3-hour flight, a hotel-stay and exploring the city of Minneapolis.
“A lovely, inspiring story about a young boy expanding his horizons and learning to enjoy travel and exploration. This is an uplifting and heartwarming book.”
“Adults have anxiety about traveling, so it’s not a far leap to think children would suffer from the same issue.”Kameron Brook
“What a wonderful book that was so heartwarming. The mom in the story shows such love as we begin with preparing Moby for his trip by getting him used to the calendar to mark off”Kid's Picture Book
