Editorial Reviews

Review

I love this delightful, wonderful book - which is filled with heart and humor. This is a "must" in the homes of families who have young children with ADHD. --Sandra F. Rief, M.A. - Author, Award Winning Educator, Educational Consultant & Trainer, former member of CHADD National Professional Advisory Board

About the Author

Julia Cook, M.S. is a national award-winning children's author, counselor, and parenting expert. She has presented in thousands of schools nationally and internationally, regularly speaks at education and counseling conferences, and has published children's books on a wide range of character and social development topics. The goal behind Cook's work is to actively involve young people in fun, memorable stories and teach them to become lifelong problem solvers. Inspiration for her books comes from working with children and carefully listening to counselors, parents, and teachers, in order to stay on top of needs in the classroom and at home. Cook has the innate ability to enter the worldview of a child through storybooks, giving children both the "what to say" and the "how to say it."

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, Care.com, Yahoo.com, Drlaura.com, and Babyzone.com. 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).

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book. Highly recommend.
By Ashley P on July 12, 2019
Arrived on time. Excellent book. Recommended for my 6yo by his guidance counselor. The main character's name is Louis. The book explains the way ADHD makes Louis feel in different situations as well as how his behavior impacts those around him. It suggests ways to help Louis control his impulses, stay focused and avoid trouble. I absolutely love this little book. I love the ending because his mom let's him know that his ADHD is not his fault but the fault of genetics and that he has to put in the work to cope with his symptoms. "Being a verb is not easy, and it never will be but it isn't your fault, kid, cause' you get it from me".
