You are a Social Detective & Superflex (ages 5-10+)

Free Read Aloud & Thinksheets

You have to reach kids before you can teach them—You Are a Social Detective! and Superflex are wonderful allies in reaching kids with a cast of colorful characters who engage kids in learning to self-regulate. For virtual tools to help you reach kids during these emotionally fragile times, check out the free read aloud and downloadable resources below.

Start by teaching You Are a Social Detective!, which gives kids the foundation to build self-awareness. This is a substantial storybook that should be taught over a period of time and revisited often to reinforce learning. Developing self-awareness is a slow process and for some children it could take many years!


After building social awareness and a social vocabulary, depending on the age of your kid, introduce Superflex to teach strategies for self-regulation in a superhero-themed format.
