Book Review: "Captain Snout And The Super Power Questions"

Book Description: 
Captain Snout and the Super Power Questions; Don’t Let the Ants Steal Your Happiness, written by board-certified child psychiatrist Dr. Daniel Amen, playfully encourages children to correct their negative thinking patterns in order to live happier and healthier lives. Comical illustrations bring the story alive as our main character, Captain Snout, reveals the superpower questions that can rid us of our automatic negative thoughts (ANTs) and lead to accurate and truthful thinking.
This picture book, based on a popular Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy technique, will help readers do just that.
My Review:
Thank you, Zondervan and the ZSquad for sending me this book for free in exchange for an honest review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% my own. 
I was very excited to read this book because in the title it says, " Super Power Questions" and that made me curious.  Then also on the cover, it says, "Don't let the ants steal your happiness."  I  knew right away this book was going to be a book that would need to go to my classroom at school for social skills lesson.  
The big idea in this story is changing the way we talk. Instead of talking negative or thinking negative we need to change it and ask ourselves a couple questions which include 1. Is that thought in your head true?  and 2. Are you 100% sure it's true?    These two questions really make you think through the statements that are made.  These questions can help eliminate whines and "I can't" statements. 
This Zondervan book is one that covers scriptural truths without actually quoting scriptures.  It makes it really easy for me to bring to school.  Hopefully, I can sneak more conversations that align with the Bible and this book after I read this story with students.
