These books are fantastic for teaching social skills in a non threatening way to young children (3-7 year olds). All children can relate to the situations. At the back of each book there are a few additional pages full of wonderful discussion starters, games, circle time ideas, role plays and fun activities for parents and teachers to reinforce the skills. Social skills need to be taught. It is well worth the time because they are the foundation to academic learning. These can be used in Circle Times as a tool in creating a Caring Classroom. Children who struggle with challenging behaviours, Autism and Learning Disabilities will greatly benefit. It's like a social story. I work as a social-emotional behavioural consultant with young children and I'd highly recommend this entire series for every Preschool, Kindergarten and Grade 1 Class.
