Editorial Reviews


...a fresh story about a young girl who needed to learn to talk softer. After several humorous episodes of inappropriately loud communications, Decibella is taken aside by her teacher. She explains that Decibella, or Isabella, her real name, has five voice volumes to choose from for effective communicating...Using the word 'slurpadoodle,' Isabella practices speaking in all five voice volumes. Most intriguing is the 6-inch voice, which means that a person more than 6 inches away, can't hear or understand what you say in that register. The teacher explains that most of the time in the classroom, Isabella should use her 6-inch voice. Isabella practices her voice volumes in all different settings, and she becomes a voice volume expert... Additional information about teaching kids proper voice volume is provided in the section titled, Tips for Parents and Educators, at the end. Humorously exaggerated illustrations of Decibella and her large mouth of teeth help express the Outside Voices or the 5th volume level. Decibella and Her 6-inch Voice is a great tool to help teach young students proper voice control in a fun, exciting story. --The Midwest Book Review, Children's Bookwatch, July 2014

Julia Cook has done it again. In the spirit of her previous work, she has taken a social concept and defined it with a child-friendly story and engaging main character. Julia offers a non-judging and child-friendly approach to teaching the hard parts of social interaction. Decibella and Her 6-inch Voice is one of those 'must have' gems that every teacher can use over and over again. --Kari Dunn Buron, Education Specialist and Author

Fun Book! This book is just so fun! I am working with a few students who struggle with understanding the difference between their indoor voice and outdoor voice. This book explains five different volumes as well as when they are appropriate. I also love that the author gives an example of a silly word to practice with. I have students use "Slurpadoodle" and practice saying it in their whisper voice, 6-inch voice, table talk voice, strong speaker voice and outside voice. --Heather, blogger @

From the Inside Flap

Isabella doesn't know how or when to use a softer, quieter voice until her teacher introduces the five volumes of voice: 6-inch, Whisper, Table-Talk, STRONG Speaker, and Outside. With patience and a little practice (saying SLURPADOODLE out loud is a big help!), Isabella learns what volume is appropriate when speaking in class, chatting in the library, sitting at the lunch table or playing outside.This captivating story is the newest release in the author's Communicate with Confidence series, which highlights skills that help young children be better communicators. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

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).
