Diary of a social detective is a fun, mystery-filled book for the older child (or parent of the child) who may struggle when trying to relate to peers. With chapters such as, "Too close for comfort: The case of back-away Bobby" or "It's not what you say but how you say it: The case of the back-talking ballerina," this book looks at ten social mysteries, lays out the facts for the reader to try to solve, and then cracks each case in clear language that points out the issues and gives suggestions for improving social behavior.
