Featured Reviews

"Say What? How We Communicate" is a great option for an approachable non-fiction book to read. I would say a good age range for this book is 10 and up. While a strong reader who is younger than 10 could read this, I think the topics and advice would be better suited for preteens and older.

This non-fiction book is well organized, vividly illustrated, and easy to dive into. It has lots of graphics, illustrations, and charts that allow reluctant readers and neurodiverse brains to focus more easily than with a typical paragraph-formatted book. The topics range from body language to internet safety and more.

So who is this book for? I think it would be a good pick to read with a preteen or teen in a small group setting at school or a buddy read at home with a guardian. It could also be helpful to read with young adults with disabilities to help guide conversations around some challenging social situations or questions. Or if you are like me, a 20-something neurodiverse reader looking to brush up on your people skills, this is also a great pick for you!

(Thank you to the publisher for an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review.)

This was so much fun but also highly educational. Communication is an often neglected topic and it benefits everyone to learn more about different kinds of communication and how they're all legitimate and useful. While the pictures are bright and busy, suitable for children, adults can learn from this too. Thanks to NetGalley for letting me read this

What a great children's nonfiction title!
The infographics were colorful and perfectly representative of the subject. The pages were laid out in such a nice way that made reading the information fun. There were a number of different elements used such as lists, timelines, and others.
This is a great nonfiction read that kids will enjoy reading through. It will be most useful for kids 8+!

This is an excellent resource for my disabilities unit because we focus on all the ways people communicate and what that means. This is very informative and will be part of my classroom collection.
