Isaac is a second-grader who struggles with waiting his turn to be recognized by an adult. He’s a little impatient, and this can get him in trouble at school and in the world.

When a tough problem has him stuck, Isaac blurts out. With patience, Isaac’s mom guides him through the steps of getting somebody’s attention appropriately, helping him with the problem, and implementing interpersonal communication skills he will need for future situations. Isaac understands, but needs some practice!

Isaac’s adventures continue at the store, at home, and at school, where the adults are there to teach him even more skills like how to interrupt the right way!
