Captain Snout and the Super Power Questions; Don’t Let the Ants Steal Your Happiness, written by board certified child psychiatrist Dr. Daniel Amen, playfully encourages children to correct their negative thinking patterns in order to live happier and healthier lives. Comical illustrations bring the story alive as our main character, Captain Snout, reveals the super power questions that can rid us of our automatic negative thoughts (ANTs) and lead to accurate and truthful thinking.
This picture book, based on a popular Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy technique, will help readers do just that.



My thoughts:  CAPTAIN SNOUT AND THE SUPER POWER QUESTIONS is a book written for preschoolers to early elementary students, but it is appropriate for people of all ages to encourage them to think positively. 

This is not a Christian book, there is no faith message in it. But there is a strong message of "You can do it" and "Don't think negatively" to encourage you on your path -- whatever it may be. A too-hard spelling test you are studying frantically for, or a college research paper with footnotes, whatever it is, prepare for it, think positively, and you can do it.

A strong message of encouragement for people of all ages, not just young children,

I was given a copy free. All opinions are my own.

Always nice to discover encouraging good behavior and character for young children in new books just for them. .
