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

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 Soda Pop Head and was able to relate to this story easily. It had great tips on how to help him relax before he blew his top. It also helped him understand how his behavior affects others.

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 ordered this book for my autistic son who has been struggling with anger lately. While reading it he was engaged and amused by the storyline, stopping to show me some of the silly pictures while laughing. When he finished I asked him if he learned anything from the book and his response was "yes, I learned that I shouldn't get so mad and just blow up all the time." Exactly what I wanted him to learn!

This book has been a fantastic resource for the elementary school counselor. I have used it in classroom guidance lessons and with individual students. The analogy of explaining anger like a bottle of pop is easy to understand and has been grasped by my students in kindergarten all the way to third grade. So many kids will come up to me in the halls and talk to me about this book or ask me to read it to them again!

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!

This is such a great book to use when you have a student who can not respond to a situation in the correct way. My class loved this book and we used it as a starting point for brainstorming ideas on how to not be a 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.
