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.

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
