Mrs. King's Toolbox Series

...Simply Better Books!

*Stories that Empower You with Powerful Skills for a Better Life*

Fun Books for Kids! Great Tips for Parents & Educators!

Everybody Wins!

I want to teach everyone simple, powerful skills that I regularly share with students and adults. We deserve to be happy and create better lives. Mrs. King's Toolbox Series can help you, or a child you love, do just that.


These tools may seem simple, but they literally change the chemicals in your brain and cause you to "Power-Up"!


Each book teaches a skill through a story. The next part of the book focuses more on that tool and how to reinforce it on a regular basis.


Although the characters in the first book deal with a child experiencing stress about starting school, "Powering-Up" can be used in any situation that causes emotional or physical discomfort for children AND adults.


I Don't Want to Go to Kindergarten...I'll Miss You Toooo Much includes follow-up activities in the book, access to an online instructional video, and free activity page downloads for future use.


The best connections are unplugged. Put a book in your hands and share it with someone special. ~ Maureen King - Author & School Counselor
