“I am thrilled to announce the release of this book!” King exclaimed. “The challenges young people face today are absolutely unbearable, and I know this book can help kids find a more positive way to live life. After reading that the third leading cause of death among adolescents is suicide, I had to do something to help.”
STINKIN’ THINKIN’ STINKS will have kids rolling with laughter as they use the term “STINK Eye” to refer to seeing things worse than they really are, “STINK Bait” to refer to being so negative that other negative people want to hang around you, and “STINK Breath” to mean using negatively-charged language. The exercises King outlines are easy and accessible and use materials any parent could get, such as Tic Tacs, index cards, poster board, markers, a great imagination.
