Summary
This colorful picture book is quite effective in teaching social skills to children with autism, Asperger's Syndrome, and other pervasive developmental disorders. Follow Tobin, a train, as he learns how to make friends with other trains and engage in proper social activities. Ages 3-8. Tobin, a train, teaches social skills to children without their being aware of the educational impact. Tobin is taught by the conductor not to blow his whistle repeatedly, not to get into other trains' space, not to crowd others or get too close to their faces, and not to borrow things without asking first, among other things. The super colorful illustrations and the dialog between the conductor and Tobin make this book great to read out loud. While written for children on the autism spectrum, the social skills enumerated in Tobin make it a book for all children
