The Unthinkable “Glassman” causes Social Town citizens to have big reactions to little problems.  In this popular illustrated book, readers follow Superflex as he takes on Glassman. Along the way, they get Superflex Academy lessons and learn self-regulation strategies that help them match the size of their emotional reaction to the size of the problem.

Buying Tip: In this teaching comic book, the superhero, Superflex, swoops down to help Aiden overcome the Unthinkable, Glassman (who causes our over-reactions to small things), at just the right time: the first day of school!  This very popular comic book works well with all primary school students and can even be adjusted to older students.  Superflex is a great teaching tool if you are going down the path of teaching students how they can use strategies to conquer their own “Unthinkables”.

Superflex Takes On Glassman and the Team of Unthinkables introduces readers to a very persistent and sneaky Unthinkable named Glassman who causes people to have large reactions to small problems (or, shatter like a pane of glass). In the story, Aiden’s classmates are regularly visited by Glassman and have large reactions to small problems. Superflex to the rescue! The kids learn strategies from the Superflex Academy to figure out the size of the problem and the expected reaction size, and use calming self-talk and other strategies to find their Superflex inside and defeat Glassman! Short quizzes pop up throughout the book to reinforce learning.

This engaging book is part of our Superflex series 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 behavior, they strengthen their flexible thinking and are better able to self-regulate in challenging times.
