What's in It for Me?
Every day Noodle hears all about what he needs to do and why he needs to do it. He hears it from his parents, teachers and coaches, and he’s sick of it! What’s the point of making his bed every morning? Does it really matter how he kicks the soccer ball? And who cares if he plays the piano too fast or writes too sloppily?
In these pages, Noodle discovers why changing all his “need tos” into “I did its” will actually make him happier and more prepared to do whatever he’s asked. Includes helpful tips and advice for parents and educators on how to help children become more self-motivated. This book is part of the Responsible Me! series of children's books. 32 pgs.

Norman, nicknamed Noodle, is tired of always being told what to do. His mom, teacher, coach, and piano teacher tell him what to do all day long! All he wants to do is play his video game, and he doesn’t understand why he needs to do all the things he is asked to do. When he tells his mom about his frustration, she explains that getting things done helps to make us feel good! Instead of thinking about how he is bossed around, he can think about all the things he is getting done! When Noodle decides to focus on his accomplishments, he feels much better, and he still has time to play his video game and go outside!
