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, and kicks the ball into his own team’s soccer goal! With his mother’s help, RJ learns that his problems happen because he doesn’t listen or pay attention to directions. Author Julia Cook’s 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 BEST ME I Can Be! series of books to teach children social skills.
