Self Control...

Interrupting Chicken

by David Stein (2014, Peachtree, 16.95/hardback)

It’s time for the little red chicken’s bedtime story—and a reminder from Papa to try not to interrupt. But the chicken can’t help herself! Whether the tale is Hansel and Grettel or Little Red Riding Hood or even Chicken Little, she jumps into the story to save its hapless characters from doing some dangerous or silly thing. Now it’s the little red chicken’s turn to tell a story, but will her yawning papa make it to the end without his own kind of interrupting? A favorite joke inspires this charming tale, in which a little chicken’s habit of interrupting bedtime stories is gleefully turned on its head. Color. Grades PreK-3. [11” x 9”...40 pages]

The Grudge Keeper

by Mara Rockliff (2014, Peachtree, 16.95/hardback)

The townspeople of Bonnripple count on Cornelius to file away their ruffled feathers, petty snits, minor tiffs, and major huffs, insults, umbrage, squabbles, dust-ups, and imbroglios--the Grudge Keeper received them all. But when a storm flings the people together and their grudges to the wind, will the Grudge Keeper be out of a job? This timely and entertaining story is beautifully conveyed through witty wordplay and elegant illustrations. Color. Grades PreK-3. [9.5” x 11”...32 pages]

Take the Time:
Mindfulness for Kids

by Maud Roegiers (2010, Magination Press, 9.95)

What do you notice when you take the time to stop, listen, and experience? This pensive and peaceful book encourages children to slow down and become deliberate with their day-to-day actions and thoughts. With gentle rhythms and soothing imagery, kids may be guided toward a quiet self-awareness and mindfulness. And when a day feels stressful or topsy-turvy, kids can use such self-awareness to calm down and feel better. Kids can then enjoy the beauty of the world all around them and fully savor life. Color. Grades K-3. [6” x 8”...32 pages]

My Mouth Is a Volcano

by Julia Cook (2006, CTC Publishing, 9.95)

Louis always interrupts! All of his thoughts are very important to him and when he has something to say, his words rumble and grumble in his tummy, they wiggle and jiggle on his tongue, and press firmly against his teeth, right before he ERUPTS (or interrupts). His mouth is a volcano! But when others begin to interrupt Louis, he learns how to respectfully wait for his turn to talk. Color. Grades K-4. [9” x 8”...32 pages]
