Read full description of the books:
I read another book by Michelle Garcia Winner a few months ago that was aimed at adults trying to understand "what makes a person with social cognitive deficits tick?" This one is to read with such a person, to use in trying to introduce a child (or adult, maybe) to concepts and vocabulary related to social thinking.
It includes three lessons in the back that could be used with a group of children, such as in a classroom setting, but those lessons do not comprehensively breakdown every important or big idea in the book. It's obvious that the book alone is not enough, and that is where you come in. You'd have to stop frequently and engage the child in the ideas and help them realize how those ideas connect to their life and experience. There's no choice but to give it a go, I think, and get better at it over time. Done well, I suspect it could take 15 or 20 sessions to finish the book as a read aloud, though I read it in less than an hour.
The author has self-published quite a few books, and I will read more of them. She is a dynamic speaker who really makes her ideas come alive. Basically, as you become more proficient by reading this book to its target audience (or to children in a class who need to develop more empathy toward someone with weak "social smarts"), you will be one step closer to illuminating for the child things that come quite naturally to most of us, things such as social cues for entering a group and showing that you are a part of it and distinguishing between what is expected behavior and what is not, but no book, including this one, is going to be the Holy Grail.
