BEST books ever!
Reviewed in the United States on July 22, 2015
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE all of her books! I can't say enough about them except I think these books should be mandatory for all teachers! I love how simple the books are to read and she always gives good advice at the end on how to incorporate the coping mechanisms. I am an Occupational Therapist, single mother of 2 girls ages 8 and 10, and a Girl Scout leader to two troops. Julia Cook's book have helped me explain to my "kids" emotional and physical "conditions" in a non-judgmental and inspiring way. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND ALL OF HER BOOKS!!!!! I also recommend you get her accompanying workbook for teachers which she has produced for several of her products. Our favorite books from Julia Cook: My Mouth is Like a Volcano (I only have to say "volcano" to my "kids" and they know they need to wait before interrupting my conversation; it's great having a "code" word so as not to "embarrass" the kids in front of others); It Isn't Easy Being a Verb (my youngest has ADHD - great resource for her); Melvin the Molar (the importance of good oral hygiene); Decibela (inside vs outside voice). I also highly recommend the book Making Friends is an Art, which was co-authored with another person (I believe). All the teachers, and pediatric OT's, I have shared these books with have gone out and immediately purchased and have used with good success. If I could give Julia Cook's books a 10/5 rating, I would. You will NOT be disappointed!!!!
