Introduce students in grades K through 6 to the most basic of social skills with this humorous story about RJ and his very rough day when nothing goes right. RJ learns that his problems happen because he doesn't listen or pay attention to directions from his mom, his school principal, his teachers, or even his friends. Four simple steps each for listening and following instructions are presented in rhyme so all kids, including RJ, will be able to remember how and when to use these fundamental social skills.
