Teach and foster social skills with this lively collection of poems for children. Strong social skills are the key to getting along, succeeding in school and at home, and enjoying time with others. Yet for many kids, greetings, eye contact, playing, competing, managing emotions, apologizing, and other essential social skills feel unnatural. One thing that is natural is the appeal of rhyming poems: they are fun to read aloud and easy to remember. These poems for children teach how to improve social skills with a lighthearted touch. Photos showing diverse kids accompany the book’s playful, often humorous language. Activities and lessons at the back of the book help adults guide children in learning social skills.
