Julia Cook (Goodreads Author), Kelsey De Weerd. The Worst Day of My LIfe Ever is a picture book that tells the story of a young boy who is having a bad day, from missing the bus to getting gum stuck in his hair. This book is the first in a series to teach children social skills that can make home life happier and school more successful.

Although I read this book, I can't say it would be very great to have in my particular classroom.

RJ has 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 messes up Mom's kitchen. 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 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!

I am a licensed therapist who works with children ages 4-10 and I am always in search of good books to read with my children (clients) that are entertaining, engaging and either teach a needed skill or lesson. None of my children (clients) were especially thrilled with this book unlike other books we have read together. The main character (RJ) is not very likable; it's difficult to become interested or invested in his character from the very beginning or even when he learns to make better choices. Simply put, as a reader (adult or child) you just don't care about him or what happens to him. For some odd reason, the author starts rhyming her words in two different sections which does not make much sense or add anything to the book; even my children asked why the book started rhyming when it had not rhymed anywhere previously. This is a good example of why a person should just order ONE book by an author to make sure it is the type of writing style that is entertaining, engaging and likable...unfortunately, I ordered two other books "My Mouth is a Volcano" and "A Bad Case of Tattle Tongue". Volcano was again just "okay" but I will probably send Tattle Tongue back because it was just so ridiculous and not ridiculous as in a "fun, childlike" manner. It had a good idea but the writing and illustrations were terrible. I hate to sound so critical but as a therapist I realize my fellow professional colleagues (and parents too) are often very busy with limited finances to purchase books of this type so I am trying to give as honest of an opinion (and again, it is mine and my client's opinion) that this book is just "okay" but I feel I should have looked a little longer and harder for something better...now perhaps after reading this review, you now can yourself.

Purchased this book and others by Julia cook in 2015. At the time I thought they were a great way to teach children.

For the past year I've really taken time to honestly reflect on what it means (and what it looks like) to grow responsible children. "We all want children to be safe, give them info they need to make wise choices in life, and teach them to think about the long term consequences of their behavior : not artificial consequences that we create, but real life consequences. Effective teaching builds on empathy, connection and child's desire to belong, contribute and learn"- john Dewey)

This book is chock full of contradictions. The main character RJ, makes a series of mistakes that leads to him having "the wort day ever" ... in response to him having made mistakes, everyone responds by telling him "I told you (so)..." no one ever address HIS feelings. This story assumes that a child will be able to remember what they've been "told to do"...
this book is all about listening, but no one is listening to the child/main character in this book.

Now, After having a better understanding of children's development. I know that PFC (prefrontal cortex- which controls our ability to attend & recall information, among other things) is still developing for this age group.
Sure you MAY be able to get the outcome that you want my teaching this way, but at what cost to the child's personal identity?

I believe that children want to do right by us, get along with us and other all while feeling confident and supported. I guess we all have our own way of "supporting" our children. I digress.

This book for me doesn't grow a TRULY responsible child. This book neglects to address the main characters feelings and needs as a young child & therefore results only a temporary solution to Him having had the worst day ever.

I absolutely love these books for my son. I have this for my four-year old and he really understands and identifies with RJ. My son is working on his listening skills and this provides a great vehicle for talking about listening and following directions. There is a contrast between RJ's worst day ever (not listening or following directions) and RJ's best day ever (following directions and listening the first time). Plus there are two clear and simple rhymes that really prove the point, which makes it very approachable for a young child. Highly recommend as a way to discuss listening and following directions with your child(ren).

I have several of Julia Cook's books and love reading them with the kids I work with. This book gives great, concrete ideas about listening and following instructions (there's even a little rhyming poem about each!) but it is given in such a way so that kids still enjoy the story! In fact, I have kids who specifically ask to read this book over and over! Given that some books make the kids sigh, roll their eyes, and ask "do we HAVE to?" I count this book's appeal as a HUGE plus!

That said, it is not a be-all, end-all tool for teaching kids these skills -- adults should be reading and discussing these ideas WITH their kids too! With all of these stories, the child and I follow up during and after the story with questions or discussion, such as "What do you think RJ could do differently?" or "How do you think RJ was feeling that morning?" The interaction and discussion is just as important as reading the story and I feel that this story does a super job of opening the door in a fun way for these discussions. The language is also easy enough that many kids can read this themselves, if they wish to.

All in all: HIGHLY recommend!

This book was a little long for my 4yr old. I like that the message isn’t just about how to listen but also that it shows the different cause and effect of when RJ makes a choice to listen and follow instructions and when he does not. It’s a good starting point and overall got the message across that when we choose to listen and follow instructions our days are better.

Purchased this to read to my 6 year old first grader. She liked the story and it helped her understand why its important to listen and follow directions, because we have been having some trouble in that area at home and in school. Its a simple story and can be easily understood by young readers.
