From the Publisher

Â"Winner of the Association of Educational Publisher's 2006 Distinguished Achievement Award for ChildrenÂ’s Books in Graphic Design & IllustrationÂ" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

My Mouth is a Volcano Helping Kids manage their thoughts and words without interrupting.

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.

My Mouth Is A Volcano takes an empathetic approach to the habit of interrupting and teaches children a witty technique to help them manage their rambunctious thoughts and words. Told from Louis’ perspective, this story provides parents, teachers, and counselors with an entertaining way to teach children the value of respecting others by listening and waiting for their turn to speak. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.


More About the Author

With over a million books in print, Julia Cook, a former school counselor and teacher, never dreamed she could evolve into an award-winning children's book author. 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 - Tattle Tongue. Fast forward seven years later, and she has more than 50 published books and activity guides. She now travels the country inspiring others to follow in her footsteps. "There are so many ideas out there that need to be shared" says Julia who takes top research and creativity and translates it into "kid language" that is both entertaining and engaging. Her light, humorous approach keeps kids laughing while they're learning good behavior skills. The goal behind all of Julia's books and efforts is to actively involve people into her fun and creative stories and teach them to become life-long problem solvers.

Julia has received the Association for Educational Publishers Distinguished Achievement Award, and her books have been honored by the National Parenting Center and Mom's Choice Awards. Her books have been referenced in such publications as Parent's Magazine, The New Yorker, The Chicago Tribune, Yahoo.com, drlaura.com, and babyzone.com and she has also been featured on CNN's HLN News, and several large metropolitan networks.

Julia has presented in more than 800 schools across the country and regularly delivers keynote addresses at national education, counseling and character conferences. In her spare time, Julia enjoys spending time with her husband and family.

In order to teach a child, you must enter their view of the world.
- Julia Cook

This book is good for all ages and targets children who may need help controlling themselves or learning how to behave in a social setting. It is very direct, funny, and very relevant. This author is a genius. I recommend this book for special education classes, inclusion classes, and especially for children on the Autism spectrum. It is probably useful in many k, 1, 2, and 3 grades.

This is a fabulous book that teaches kids to stop interrupting in a fun yet meaningful way. I work individually with kids and they often ask if they can take this book back for their whole class to share! All the teachers I have lent it to loved it as well!

i bought this for my students, but i think it's about me...i'm working on it. great book to introduce the topic to elementary students...especially the adhd students (and adults). it's great too when paired with one of my favorite posters: "Did I say that out loud?"

I bought this book because my daughter had been having issues interrupting both at school and at home. The book arrived in the mail and my daughter, she's 7, started to read it on her own. She got to the part where the words wiggle and then jiggle and then I erupt. She turned to me and she said "mom that's what happens to me". We read it together and I'm very hopeful that the book will help with her interrupting problem and even if it doesn't it's a very cute book.

I teach full-day kindergarten and LOVE reading this book in the beginning of the year. Then I can remind students to not let their mouths be a volcano and they really 'get it'. Blurting out is a hard habit to break, but this really helps...and in a most understanding way.

I LOVE this Book...and this author! I teach Kindergarten/First Grade and have used all of Julia Cook's books in my classroom. Her ideas are wonderful and simple enough for students to understand. I highly recommend her work to others....At last! Books that teach things we've struggled with for years as teachers....Thank you, Ms. Cook.
