The Rabbit Who Lost His Hop
: A Story About Self-Control

by Marcia Nass (2004, Childswork/Childsplay, 12.95)

In this entertaining story, Ricky Rabbit has forgotten how to hop. Instead, he just runs and races around, totally out of control. He can`t even play hopscotch like the other rabbits, because he just doesn`t have enough self-control. Fortunately, Ricky goes to an understanding counselor, who teaches him how to stop, relax, and think. With practice, Ricky learns to control his impulsivity and overactivity—and gets back his hop. For ages 4-8. [8.5” x 11”...57 pages]

Learning to Listen, Learning to Care
: A Workbook to Help Kids Learn Self-Control & Empathy

by Lawrence Shapiro (2008, New Harbinger Publications, 16.95)

The 40 activities in this workbook begin by explaining the reasons why learning to care what others think is so important to a child's happiness and success. The activities then teach the emotional, behavioral, cognitive, and social skills that underlie what adults commonly call "good behavior." And after each activity, children will find thought-provoking questions to help them develop a point of view that stresses respect for others, cooperativeness, and a positive outlook. Grades 1-8. [8” x 10”...136 pages]
