When I first read the title of Caroline Maguire's book, I expected it to be about social needs of young children. Was I wrong! This amazing book is helping me change the way I communicate with students of all ages. It also gives me scripts to practice in communicating with colleagues, friends, and relatives. I've been an educator for more than 50 years, and this is one book that has had an immediate impact on every aspect of my teaching. I wish Caroline Maguire was around when I was growing up. She uses visuals and catchy phrases to make the strategies memorable--from "Be a Social Spy" to "Taking a Social Right Turn." This is a well-researched guide book, and I recommend a hardback or paperback so you can add sticky notes and return to the drawings (that don't show up as well in the Kindle edition). My book is bristling with sticky-notes because there are so many useful tools.
