SuperFlex!

Have y'all heard of SuperFlex?? There is a series of books written by: by Stephanie Madrigal and Michelle Garcia Winner....the books take place in a town called Social Town, where the citizens are often taken over by villains or 'Unthinkables!' 

Here is some information from the website, Social Thinking (which sells the curriculum package):
....The package includes the colorfully illustrated 21-page storybook, Superflex Takes on Rock Brain and the Team of Unthinkables. This book tells the story of how Superflex came to be. The children will enter Superflex's town, Social Town, and learn about the cast of Unthinkables who are trying to overtake and rid the town of Superflex forever. Superflex and his sidekick dog, Bark, go on their first mission to try to save the citizens of Social Town. Depicting behaviors as comic book characters helps to remove blocks to the student's awareness of the behaviors, while the superhero Superflex helps build the thinking required to regulate those behaviors....

I also found this PDF which provides a visual and description of all the Unthinkables. Then there is SuperFlex taking on Glassman....AND! The newest edition, Social Town Citizens Discover 82 New Unthinkables for Superflex to Outsmart!!! FANTASTIC!!! 

I read the comic Superflex Takes on Rock Brain and the Team of Unthinkables, with a client, then had him make his own unthinkable puppet. I think I might take the plunge and buy the set for myself--there are so many possibilites with the concept! I can't wait to explore this resource more!!
