Multiple examples throughout the story. The message is there but it doesn't get boring. A book that can be read just for fun

This was a great book for my classroom. I read it to my class at appropriate times when they are struggling with this concept.

Review from Books That Heal Kids May 10 2011
By Books That Heal Kids - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
All of author Julia Cook's books are STAPLES in my academic skills curriculum as an elementary school counselor. There's a very simple reason I re-read them over and over every year - they WORK. The best way I know how to help kids overcome academic deficits is to practice these weaknesses. What better way to introduce skills then through an engaging story of a character going through the same struggle.

Some kids have no problem following directions, but other kids like RJ come to school everyday with the best intentions and leave feeling down on themselves. That really breaks my heart. As an educator it's my job to help those students find success. If we want kids to follow directions - lets teach them in a loving and supportive way. This is a very appropriate story to do just so.....

I've already been using The Worst Day of My Life Ever! to do some re-teaching around following teacher instructions. It's going to make a WORLD of difference when we come back after summer break too. Can't wait to kick off some role plays around following directions with the reinforcement of Julia Cook's latest genius.

Buy this book on listening skills and following directions Aug. 1 2011

My 5-year-old son loves this book. There are very few books on teaching kids how to listen and follow instructions at school. This book is wonderful and really captures my son's attention throughout the story. The author has a gifted talent in teaching complicated concept and life skills to little kids with such great humor.

Love it!!! April 26 2011

This is a wonderful book for explaining to children how they can take responsibility for their own day by listening and paying attention. I read this VERY often to my two children, 3 & 5 to go over how they could have made their own days better when we have "rough" days.

great lessons learned March 12 2013
By S. Police - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I got this book to read to my 6yr old nephew, zach, who has adhd. At first, I didn't like the way it was written, it's not really written in a manner that makes it easy to read to a kid. When trying to get the lesson across as to why RJ was having a bad day, it loses it's childlike mannerism and reads like an adult talking to another adult. I had to do some impromptu dialogue to keep it more simplistic for zach. for that reason, i was going to rate this book with about 2 or 3. but zach did get the point. the character, RJ, was having a bad day simply because he was not listening and paying attention. The book teaches kids that in order to truly listen, they need to look at the person talking to them and respond accordingly when they are done. surprisingly to me, zach did get the point. when i'm speaking to him and his attention is elsewhere, i stop and ask him what he should be doing when i'm talking to him and he responds, 'Looking at you and listening'...and so i rate this 4 stars because the point came across.

It teaches a lesson and he actually gets it! Pay attention, follow instructions, don't interrupt with your short attention span and your day just might be great!
