Thanks for the Feedback (with CD) – Julia Cook

Do you know a young person who tends to argue or give excuses when you are trying to correct behavior? Or a student who misinterprets praise and compliments? Teach them the social skills “how to accept feedback” and “how to give and receive compliments” using a kid-friendly story with a lesson that enriches social emotional learning. This entertaining story follows RJ as he goes about his day doing the things he enjoys, such as blowing bubbles, playing soccer, and hanging out with friends. But when a couple of friends give him compliments, he just isn’t sure how to respond! As RJ continues through the day, he hears from his teacher and parents that while there are many things he’s doing very well, there are some things he needs to work on. His first reaction is to argue and make excuses. Throughout this story, RJ learns what it means to receive positive and negative feedback, and how to respond appropriately to that feedback.

This picture book book is the sixth in Julia Cook’s BEST ME I Can Be! series which teaches children in grades K through 6 social skills that can make home life happier and school more successful. Tips for parents and educators to effectively teach how to give and receive compliments and how to accept feedback are included at the end of the picture book.

A Bad Case of Tattle Tongue- Julia Cook

A Book that Helps Kids Learn the Difference Between Tattling and Telling.

No one likes “Josh the Tattler” because he tattles way too much. He tattles on his classmates, his brother, and even his dog! But one night Josh wakes up to find that his tongue is very long, yellow, covered in bright purple spots, and Itchy, Itchy, Scratchy, Scratchy….

Will a bad case of Tattle Tongue teach him a lesson?

A Bad Case of Tattle Tongue gives teachers and counselors a humorous, cleverly creative way to address the time-consuming tattling-related issues that often sap classroom energy and thwart teaching opportunities. Parents who “battle the tattle” at home, on the playground, in the grocery store, or anywhere else can use this book to both entertain and enlighten their children about “The Tattle Rules.” Every adult who desires to help children understand the differences between tattling and the need to warn others about important matters needs this book!
