About the Author

Julia Cook was born and raised in Salt Lake City Utah. While living in Utah, she became actively involved in teaching children how to ski. That experience led to a love of teaching in general. Julia now lives in Fremont, Nebraska and has a Masters degree in Elementary School Counseling. While serving as a guidance counselor, she often used childrens books to enhance her classroom lessons. Julia is now a nationally recognized award-winning childrens book author who has written more than a dozen books on behavior and health for children as well as several activity books for teachers. Her light, humorous approach keeps kids laughing while they're learning good behavior skills. The goal behind all of Julias books and efforts is to actively involve people into her fun and creative stories and teach them to become life-long problem solvers. Inspirations for her books come from working with children and carefully listening to parents, teachers and corporate leaders. Julias books have been referenced in such publications as Parents Magazine, The New Yorker, and babyzone.com. 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

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.

I used this book with my schoolager class as a part of a series to address some social/emotional issues we were having in the classroom (especially handling anger!) The kids asked me to read it a couple of times and several even read it to themselves afterwards. We keep hearing "Soda Pop Head" around the classroom. To further illustrate the point, we made a visual using a soda bottle with orange colored water and drew an angry face on it. We left it out in our classroom next to the book. They look at it daily. Today(about 2 wks after we read the book) one student asked if she could bring in a "mint bomb" to illustrate the "fizz" in Soda Pop Head. I love these books by Julia Cook and intend to get them all for my classroom!!!

I used this in school with first and second graders. They easily identified with it and found it useful in realizing that they must not be like Soda Pop head.

My son is a very bright 6-year old. He is also very sensitive. He felt shamed by this book. The children in the book make fun of Soda-Pop Head, the lead character who has the explosive anger issue. They taunt and tease him with a sing-songy rhyme. My son told me to sell the book and he would never look at it again. He ran and hid in the next room and cried. He does not like having angry outbursts. He needs guidance and tools, not shame. I was very disappointed.

I am an elementary school counselor and have used this book in guidance lessons and in individual counseling. Kids love it! I love the push/pull/dangle exercise for controlling anger. Practical ideas!

I counsel children and this book will be a great tool to use to help children understand anger. If you work in the mental health field, I highly recommend Julia Cook's children's books. Great bibliotherapy tool!

Great book for helping kids understand the thoughts and physiological reactions that occur before they have an outburst. Like the coping strategies the book talks about using when feeling angry.
