Editorial Reviews


But It's Not My Fault is a cheery, quirky, color illustrated story about Noodle, a boy who gets into trouble but has so many excuses he can't take responsibility for his own behavior. Written in peppy verse and powered by active pictures of children of different racial backgrounds in everyday situations, But It's Not My Fault deals with the blame game especially as played by kids. There are many moments of humor, some times of thinking, and lots of careful reflecting in the pages of "But It's Not My Fault." Parents and teachers will appreciate the nine points listed on the last page, Tips for Parents and Educators. But It's Not My Fault is all about turning the blame game into the responsibility challenge for kids. --Children's Bookwatch, July 2015, Midwest Book Review

...the author presents facts and answers to acknowledging something that may have been said or done that has done damage to someone physically or emotionally...This practical handbook is full of suggestions and ideas that make a lot of sense in developing a proper family and school atmosphere. --M.G. Paregian, Publisher

Most of Julia Cook's books state they are for 4-10 year old children. As the grandparent of a young teen with Asperger's, I'm here to say her books are usually the only way we can help him to understand whatever the current or new problem might be. We can talk about what he needs to say or do, but it seldom connects, as he will tune out and shut down during a parental lecture. These books have been a godsend. Speaking out of turn and/or interrupting... yep, there's one for that.Tattling, teasing, personal space, choices, responsibility, meltdowns, anxiety, worry, frustration, grief, attitude adjustment - one for each of those too. She has written so many wonderful, easy to read and comprehend, short books on social skills - the one trait so many Aspies share - I think we have purchased them all. Maybe she'll write a few books to help older teens and younger adults refine their social skills ... I'd buy them! --Vicki Cobb

Julia Cook, M.S.

With millions of books in print, Julia Cook is a former school counselor and teacher who never dreamed she could evolve into a national award-winning children’s author, parenting expert, and inspirational speaker. She now travels the world encouraging students and educators to become lifelong problem solvers. “There are so many ideas out there that need to be shared!” says Julia, who takes top research and creatively translates it into “kid language” that is both entertaining and engaging. Julia has the innate ability to enter the worldview of a child through picture books, giving children both the “what to say” and the “how to say it.”

Several years ago, Julia was searching for an effective story to teach children about the differences between tattling and telling. When she couldn’t find the right resource, she decided to write her own book – A Bad Case of Tattle Tongue. Over a decade later, she has published bestselling books with the National Center for Youth Issues, Boys Town Press, and the CDC. Cook’s ultimate goal: make a positive difference in the lives of people both young and old by teaching lifelong problem-solving skills.

Julia has been endorsed by organizations including the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, Safe and Sound (a Sandy Hook initiative,) Childwatch of North America, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Childhelp, Darkness to Light, USA Volleyball, and The Alaska Department of Education. Cook’s research-based books have been referenced in outlets including Parent’s Magazine, The New Yorker, The Chicago Tribune, Military Spouse,,,, and She has also been featured on Hallmark Home and Family, CNN’s HLN News, and numerous metropolitan networks. She is the recipient of several book awards including The Association of Educational Publisher’s Distinguished Achievement Award, the National Parenting Seal of Approval, and The Mom’s Choice Award.

Julia frequently delivers entertaining and engaging keynote addresses at counseling, business and leadership, and character development conferences and has presented in thousands of schools both nationwide and internationally.

Bestselling Titles Include: My Mouth is a Volcano! (interrupting), Bubble Gum Brain (growth mindset), A Flicker of Hope (depression and youth suicide), Uniquely Wired (autism), Jumping Into Kindergarten (kindergarten preparation), The Judgmental Flower (appreciating differences/ building relationships), Foster Care (emotions related to being in foster care), But It’s Just a Game! (gaming addiction), Wilma Jean the Worry Machine (anxiety), But It’s Not My Fault! (assuming responsibility), Soda Pop Head (anger control), and I Can’t Believe You Said That! (using social filters).
