Product Overview

Baj lives on the planet Aular and in many ways is like any other kid, but he has trouble keeping eye contact, waiting his turn in conversation and understanding instructions. Will Baj ever get good at working out how other people feel and why? How can he control his "jumbly" words when he's upset or mad? When Baj is given a special present - a magical communication Kit - he has the chance to discover the complex rules of social skills. An invisible Calming Cape comforts his body, making it easier to keep his cool in difficult situations; a Word Launcher guides him in choosing the best words for the situation; and Listening Aids help him spot the most important words when people talk. Do these magical instruments mean Baj will become a strong communicator? And can he learn to communicate without them? To see, join Baj on his flying bicycle as he ventures on space age adventures in communication! This entertaining adventure story will capture children's imagination while exploring the complexities of the social world. Children can read about Baj's experiences independently or with a parent or helper, and the reader can learn about body language and the unspoken rules of communication. Parents and teachers can also use this book to teach social skills to children in storytelling groups. "Stop and Think" questions that pepper the book prompt the reader to think about how they feel and react to events in the story, offering opportunities for individualized learning.
