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.
