It is difficult to play with others when you don't understand the "hidden rules" of social relationships. In Join In and Play, a young girl clearly explains what she does and says when she wants to play with someone. The narrative maintains an even tone, giving the reader choices when things don't work out as expected. The book emphasizes the importance of talking and listening with respect as well as playing fair.
This book is great for working with students with social skills difficulties. Readers can learn with realistic examples and talk through the book with a parent or teacher. The colorful, kid-friendly illustrations keep children engaged as they learn how they can interact with peers.
This book features full color illustrations and includes four pages of ideas that parents and teachers can use to help their kids learn social concepts.
Recommended for kids 4 - 8 years old.
