Social Emotional Learning Lab - "But It's Not My Fault"

Let's read a book! Click the link above for our book of the month!

Teach children to stop making excuses and blaming others when they make mistakes.

My name is Norman David Edwards but everybody calls me Noodle. Sometimes things happen to me that get me into trouble. But it's not my fault!

This first book in the new Responsible Me! series, follows Noodle through a very rough day at school. It just isn't his fault that his brother's game ran late and he didn't finish his homework.

Or that his mom forgot to remind him to turn in his library book.
Or that Mary Gold got in his airspace and hit his arm with her head...

Join Noodle on his journey as he learns not to blame others or try to find fault; but instead practices accepting responsibility, and turns his very rough day into a very good NEW day!

Elementary school kids will identify with Noodle as he makes one excuse after another for his behavior and choices that lead to unwanted consequences. By learning to accept responsibility he finds instead how to use mistakes as opportunities for problem-solving and to turn negatives into positives.

Stop the Blame Game with this book written for kids in grades K-5. Tips for parents, counselors, and teachers are included.
