RJ has had a rough day!
He wakes up with gum stuck in his hair, misses recess because he is late to school and gets caught running in the hall, earns a zero on his math homework, kicks the ball into his own team’s soccer goal, and messes up his mom’s kitchen with his overflowing pancake batter!
With Mom’s help, RJ learns that his problems happen because he doesn’t listen and follow instructions from her, his school principal, teachers, or even his friends.
K-6 readers learn the rhyming steps to the skills of listening and following instructions that can turn bad days into great ones! When RJ learns to use these skills the right way, he has the best day of his life.

Author Julia Cook reads RJ’s story so even more children can enjoy her entertaining presentation as they follow along in the book. The CD has two tracks, one with the book’s text only and the other that also includes page-turning cues for youngsters just learning to read.
