Kids sometimes fail to realize the importance of acting interested in others kids special interests. This is a key factor in making and keeping friends. The Social Fake is introduced in this social story and tells our reader that you don't have to pretend to LIKE something you just have to pretend TO BE INTERESTED. We of course use perspective taking and explain that everyone just wants to have themselves be acknowledged. We provide a check list for body signals to show that you are interested and reiterate that other kids will tend to have good thoughts when you act interested.
