Superflex and Kool Q. Cumber to the Rescue

Written by Michelle Garcia Winner and the Superflex Creative Team

Superflex and Kool Q. Cumber to the Rescue! introduces readers to the Thinkable Kool Q. Cumber (we call him Kool, for short!). Kool helps Social Town citizens stay calm when problems happen, and use strategies they learn to figure out the size of a problem and the expected reaction size. In the story, Aiden and his classmates present science projects, but Aiden’s friend Sam becomes frustrated with problems throughout the day. As Sam feels his brain being invaded by Glassman, he uses the strategies he learned from Kool and the five Power Pals to calm down and have a reaction that matches the size of the problem.

This engaging book is part of our Superflex series, which is designed to help children learn about their own and others’ thoughts and behaviours, and practice strategies for self-regulation across a variety of situations. As kids learn strategies to defeat the Unthinkables and unexpected behaviour, they strengthen their flexible thinking and are better able to self-regulate in challenging times.

This illustrated storybook connects to and supports these Social Thinking Vocabulary concepts:

  • Figuring out the size of the problem
  • Learning to match reaction size to size of the problem (expected behaviour)
  • Social attention/observation: what are other kids doing/how are they reacting?
  • Flexible Thinking
  • Using strategies to defeat Glassman: calming my body, breathing in, tightening all my muscles, breathing out and relaxing them; using positive self-talk, etc.
  • The Five-Step Power Plan helps organise children’s thinking so they can more effectively problem solve what’s happening around them. This aligns with and supports the four steps in the Social Thinking Social Competency Model: attend, interpret, problem solve, respond.
  • Using the Five-Step Power Plan to assess the social dilemma.

Before sharing this book with children, parents and educators need to start at the beginning, introduce core concepts, and work through the Superflex curriculum. Books should be introduced in this order:



Once kids have reached this point, you can choose from an array of Superflex products to teach depending on the concepts your kids need to work on. To dive deeper into strategies for staying calm when problems happen, move on to the books listed below.
