Voices in the Park by Anthony Browne
This book is a wonderful book for school aged children that teaches them about perspective taking. Voices in the Park actually consists of four unique perspectives about an outing in a park. The four characters telling about an adventure in the park are an uppity mother, her glum little son, an unemployed father, and his cheerful daughter. This is an excellent book that helps children understand that not all people view a situation in the same way, but it also helps them learn about how to be flexible in terms of seeing situations from different points of view. This would be a fantastic book for an older child with social communicative difficulties. Where to Buy: This book was published about 12 years ago, but is still available through most major children's book sellers. If you can't find it in a local store you can always find it on Amazon.
