My son loves reading the book together and I can already see him implementing the lessons after just a few weeks.
I thought it was great that he considered the book a helpful tool to refer to when he was unsure of how to handle a social situation.
The pictures and captions throughout this book are a very helpful visual aid to teach social skills and positive interaction.
