Book Description

Oct. 1 2008
All of Louis' thoughts are very important to him. In fact, his thoughts are so important to him that when he has something to say, his words begin to wiggle, and then they do the jiggle, then his tongue pushes all of his important words up against his teeth and he erupts, or interrupts others. His mouth is a volcano! My Mouth Is A Volcano takes an empathetic approach to the habit of interrupting and teaches children a witty technique to capture their rambunctious thoughts and words for expression at an appropriate time. 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 book is helpful for those spontaneous and impulsive individuals who need help. Sometimes you need to take a deep breath before speaking. Colourful and good reading. It is worth having it in your collection of good reads.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful! Dec 10 2011
I read this book to a grade one class with one student in mind. It was wonderful and the student recognized himself in the story by crying out "He is like me." I was so impressed as the teacher talks weren't working but the book helped the student recognize how others may feel and all I needed to do is say "Volcano" and he would know that he had to listen to others and put his hand up to speak. Very powerful.

My students enjoyed the book. I thought the illustrations were great. The message was great for my grade 1 class. I just wish I could have gotten it in hard cover.

4.0 out of 5 stars Always interrupting! April 22 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Well done story that demonstrates what happens when children interrupt when others are talking. Very helpful for my young grandson who always has so much to say and can't wait to tell! Already at dinner yesterday I heard his mom say "volcano" and he immediately stopped, till it was his turn. Recommended.

Louis is a smart kid with a voracious aptitude of unleashing his pent-up, repressed thoughts at the most inopportune times. Whether at school or at home his mind wanders to other things while those around him are speaking. His words start to wiggle, then they jiggle, then his tongue pushes all his important words against his teeth and he erupts....just like a volcano...spewing forth wordage to the entire world. His interruptions often cause him to require time out or be sent to his room. Then one day Louis has to speak in front of his class and it's there he learns first hand what it feels like to be interrupted and cut-off by his fellow peers right in the middle of his dissertation. From that day forth he has a new perspective on barging in when someone else is trying to talk. When that happens to him at school he feels those interjecting are very rude and insensitive indeed and stole his moment of fame away from him.

This book is witty, expressive and a good learning tool to teach children how to control their emotions. The illustrations are amazing, capturing the message of the book perfectly. The nice thing is that Louis gets a plan from his mom as to how he can implement a simple technique for the future that will help him focus and not be known as "the great interrupter." This would be a great book to read aloud the first week of school or at bedtime if you have a little "butt-er inner" living in your midst at home. This is a valuable lesson to teach children (and some adults need this lesson too) regarding respectfully waiting your turn and being respectful of what others are saying. Listening is becoming a lost art in our world and we all need to be reminded to sit quietly, listen up to what others are saying and then, ......it's our turn. I highly recommend this book.
