Some kids tend to over-react to minor issues without realizing the over-reaction is actually in their tone of voice! This social story brings about awareness in two types of tones - mean and friendly. The concept of sarcasm is tied in as well, as this is often used without kids understanding the perceived intent. Great for kids who need direct instruction about pro social behaviors and making friends.
