I Can Learn Social Skills!: Poems About Getting Along, Being a Good Friend, and Growing Up
I Can Learn Social Skills: Poems About Getting Along, Being a Good Friend, and Growing Up is written by Benjamin Farrey-Latz. It has great poems you can read next time you’re having trouble with social skills. My favorite line in “I Can Do That!” is “I can stay calm when I am mad / And cheer you up when you feel sad.” “Poke” and “Too Close!” talk about personal space—one of my greatest problems. My mom doesn’t like “booping”—poking the nose while saying “boop!”—so I try an “air boop” instead. “My Turn to Talk” recalls what I do sometimes—yelling out and my teacher says “Rude!” after I do so. The poem reminds me that when others are speaking I don’t blurt out. Other poems deal with asking for help, handling change, using manners, and talking with other people. This is the first time I’ve seen a book about social skills that is in the form of poems, which I love. This is a great book for any kid but especially those on the autism spectrum who may need extra support for social skills. If that sounds like you, then check this book out!
