Due to the mass confusion caused by use of the word "flexible" in the names of many of our products, The Incredible Flexible You series name has changed to We Thinkers! Volume 1, formerly known as The Incredible Flexible You, has been renamed to We Thinkers! Volume 1 Social Explorers. Volume 2 is named We Thinkers! Volume 2 Social Problem Solvers. There will be no content change in Volume 1, only a name change.


As the components in Volume 1 are reprinted (Storybooks 1-5, curriculum book, and tote bag), we will be updating them with the new We Thinkers! name. In the interim, our Volume 1 Deluxe Package may contain products with the two series' name on them.


Thank you for being "flexible" as we work through this name change!


We Thinkers! Volume 1 Social Explorers is an engaging Social Thinking educational series that combines a social learning framework used in schools across the U.S. with music and dramatic play activities that will appeal to early learners. Play is the learning environment of young children, and this curriculum capitalizes on this idea! The We Thinkers! Volume 1 Social Explorers Deluxe Set includes the five storybook set, curriculum book, The Incredible Flexible You music CD, and a free tote bag.


Volume 2, Social Problem Solvers, builds off of the concepts taught in Volume 1 and explores more advanced Social Thinking concepts and vocabulary such as: Hidden Rules and Expected and Unexpected Behaviors, Smart Guess, Flexible and Stuck Thinking, Size of the Problem, and Sharing an Imagination. However, because the teaching and learning is sequential it is important that Volume 1 be used before moving to Volume 2.
