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.”

I bought this to go along with Personal Space Camp as I was preparing a couple of lessons on Personal Space during my Environmental Health unit for my 2nd grade Health classes. I used a number of activities from this book and could/would have used more had I had more class time. This is a great companion to PSC with real life/ready to use activities/materials.

I bought this to go with the book, for use at home. It is written for a classroom. But I’ve found many of the activities you can use at home for one child or multiple. Or tweak them a bit for at home use to further teach a child about personal space.
