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”.
