About the Book

Louis always interrupts! All of his thoughts are very important to him. Right before he ERUPTS (or interrupts), his words rumble and grumble in his stomach, wiggle and jiggle on his tongue, and then push on his teeth. His mouth is like a volcano! But when others interrupt Louis, he learns to patiently wait for his turn to talk. The book takes an empathetic approach to interrupting habits and teaches kids a witty technique to manage their rambunctious thoughts. This story helps parents, teachers, and counselors teach children respect through Louis' perspective. Buy the book.
