How many parents and classroom teachers have experienced a child who can read, often at an early age but can’t seem to grasp the meaning behind a sentence, or struggles to interpret storylines or the characters’ perspectives or emotions?

Reading comprehension is more than decoding words. It depends less on language comprehension and more on a student’s social thinking ability. Yet little has been written from this point of view. Until now. Author Audra Jensen brilliantly illuminates the synergistic relationship between social thinking and reading comprehension. Teachers, administrators, parents, and clinicians alike will appreciate her positive, practical approach to helping children learn to read for meaning.
