Louis has no filter on his mouth, he says whatever is on his mind whenever he thinks it. He often interrupts others who are speaking and must learn to be patient and wait.

Young Reader Reaction: "I am just like Louis!" Our daughter seems to relate to each of Julia Cook's characters ... and gets the message that the scenes play out.

Adult Reader Reaction: Julia Cook clearly taps into the feelings and energy of an impatient child (or adult!). I love how she connects the reader to Louis first, then turns the table on Louis in the journey to a solution.

Pros: Young readers - even patient ones - will relate to Louis. From the way a word leads to new ideas in your head to trying to stay quiet there is something for everyone in this book.

This book is about a young boy who loves to talk. He says anything and everything that comes to his mind. Sometimes he comes off as being rude or interruptive to others. The young boy is learning how to speak appropriately and take turns while talking to others.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0974778974, Paperback)

All of Louis’ thoughts are very important to him. In fact, his thoughts are so important to him that when he has something to say, his words begin to wiggle, and then they do the jiggle, then his tongue pushes all of his important words up against his teeth and he erupts, or interrupts others. His mouth is a volcano! My Mouth Is A Volcano takes an empathetic approach to the habit of interrupting and teaches children a witty technique to capture their rambunctious thoughts and words for expression at an appropriate time. Told from Louis’ perspective, this story provides parents, teachers, and counselors with an entertaining way to teach children the value of respecting others by listening and waiting for their turn to speak.
