Superflex Takes On Brain Eater and the Team of Unthinkables introduces readers to the Unthinkable Brain Eater, who uses his powers to distract citizens’ brains from focusing on what they’re doing or what others are talking about. In the illustrated storybook, Aiden’s classmates are visited by Brain Eater and are having trouble focusing on what they should be doing, like getting ready for school and listening in class. Superflex to the rescue! The kids learn strategies for staying on task from the Superflex Academy that involve using checklists, Distracter Shields, fidgets, and keeping their brain in the group to find their Superflex inside and defeat Brain Eater! Short quizzes pop up throughout the book to reinforce learning, and teaching materials are included on a CD for easy printing.
This engaging book is part of our Superflex series – explained here – which is designed to help children learn about their own and others’ thoughts and behaviors, and practice strategies for self-regulation across a variety of situations. As kids learn strategies to defeat the Unthinkables and unexpected behaviour, they strengthen their flexible thinking and are better able to self-regulate in challenging times.
