RJ has had a rough day – he wakes up with gum stuck in his
hair, misses recess because he’s late to school, earns a zero on his math homework, kicks the ball into his own team’s soccer goal, and messes up Mom’s kitchen with his overflowing pancake batter! With his mother’s help, RJ learns that his problems happen because he doesn’t listen or pay attention to directions from her, his school principal, teachers, or even his friends.

Author Julia Cook’s new book shows RJ as well as all K-6 readers the steps to the fundamental social skills of listening and following instructions. When RJ learns to use these skills the right way, he has the best day of his life!

This book is the first in the series the Best ME I Can Be! to teach children social skills that can make home life happier and school more successful. The skills are part of the Boys Town Education Model that has improved student behavior and classroom climates in hundreds of schools across the country. The book includes tips for parents and educators on
how to effectively teach listening and following instructions skills to kids.

The book is also available with an accompanying CD so children can listen to the author’s entertaining rendition of RJ’s story. One track features the text only, while a second track includes cues on when to turn the page for youngsters just learning to read. Posters of each of the two social skills feature RJ and the author’s clever rhymes. They can be posted in classrooms and other places kids congregate to remind them of the steps to the skills.
“ With The WORST Day of My Life EVER! Julia Cook has hit another
home run. Kids will not only relate but learn from the character RJ
as he uses listening skills to transform his worst day ever into his
best day ever! Parents, teachers, and school counselors will delight
in having such an invaluable resource on their bookshelf.”
– Roxanne Davidson, Elementary School Counselor, Portland, OR
