These three books, along with the first of 3 Cool Kind Kid Flash and Game Cards, the award-winning Cool Kind Kid CD, wrist bands, and other products are also available in the first of 5 Cool Kind Kid Bullying Prevention Parent/Child Resource Kit [ages 4-9].
Social Skills that Break the Cycle of Bullying by Redefining “Cool”™

As a teacher,  I was excited to hear about this Cool Kid series.  Once I got the review copies I totally loved the series.  It really is an excellent tool.  A resource every teacher should have available to them.  This series has wonderful ideas to use in a classroom meeting.  The picture book is in graphic form and I found that kids are very apt to grab that type of book over one with lots of words on the page.  The CD was not included in my review set; however, I did go online and listen to the sample clips that are on the web site.

Redefining "Cool"™

Kids learn that they can be both cool and kind, without bullying. “Cool” is treating others with kindness and respect.

“Kind is Cool” and “Cool is Kind”™

The kind person is the cool person.
You can’t be truly cool if you are unkind.
Learn social skills to prevent bullying.

It’s “Cool” to live The Golden Rule™

“Treat others the way you want to be treated.”
Too many follow a different rule, "Treat others the way they
treat you." Kids who bully often follow this rule.

The “Kind” kid is the “Cool” kid, not the bully™

Bullying is the ultimate “uncool.” Social skills are the missing link
in bullying prevention.

A copy of this book was provided by Bostick Communications and the author in exchange for my honest review.
