A story about a little boy who realizes he needs to ask before doing something that he doesn't have permission for.

I love the RJ series, so I couldn't wait for this to arrive. I am often working with young children who do not like to accept the consequences of their actions, who break rules, and do not ask permission. This book is a great ice breaker for approaching those issues with young children. Well written and illustrated as always. ( )

Little Kid Reaction: After reading Soda Pop Head, our daughter was begging for all of the Julia Cook books we had in the house. You could see that she was clearly uncomfortable with some of the scenarios, as well as the guides for asking permission and saying I'm sorry.

Big Kid Reaction: The author nailed three of the most common "temptations" for kids when they don't think to ask for permission, don't want to ask for permission, or are just tempted. Time Out (R.J.'s consequence) will resonate more with younger readers, but older readers will appreciate the help offered by R.J.'s dad and the school principal.

Pros: Realistic events will resonate with kids and give parents an opportunity to talk about asking permission and saying you're sorry.
