Description

Freddie returns with quite the conundrum, and boy is he one frustrated fly! He keeps missing social cues, so he misunderstands what people mean, and then he find himself in a mess. He just doesn't get that there is a lot more to communication than the words that people say.

Fortunately, for our favorite fly, he has his dad and Principal Roachford available to teach him about connecting the communication dots, including voice tone, facial expressions and body language. But will Freddie remember to look for and connect all these dots when he’s buzzing about town on his own? Or will he find himself in the middle of more messy misunderstandings?

This is the second in Kimberly Delude's children's picture book series Freddie the Fly. Using the connect-the-dots method that Freddie learns can help young people navigate confusing social interactions, making it easier for them to interpret and understand what is really being said by teachers, friends, family, and others. Included at the end of the storybook are tips for parents and educators to help pre-K through grade 5 students understand the complex social skill of "Social Cues." 32 pgs.
