National Center for Youth Issues

Julia Cook, M.S. is a award-winning children’s author, counselor, and parenting expert. She has presented in thousands of schools and speaks at education and counseling conferences nationally and internationally. Julia has published almost one hundred children’s books on a wide range of character and social development topics, and regularly contributes to print and television media about these topics. The goal behind Cook’s work is to actively involve young people in fun, memorable stories and teach them to become lifelong problem-solvers. Inspiration for her books comes from working with children and carefully listening to counselors, parents, and teachers, in order to stay on top of needs in the classroom and at home. Cook has the innate ability to enter the worldview of a child through storybooks, giving children both the “what to say” and the “how to say it.”

Taking time to create my own lesson plans for the story My Mouth is a Volcano would have been time consuming. I am pleased that this activity book is available and the activities in it are good for groups.

This is a great resource to use alongside the children’s book! My students loved the activities I chose for our class’s learning of how to share ideas and thoughts appropriately.

This is a great book. I work with kids that have autism and behavioral problems. This has fun activities that help the kids understand.
