“GET ME OUT OF THIS BOOK!” shouts Max. Max is a scaredy-cat bookmark until he learns 3 rules for being brave—breathe deeply, make a plan, and think positive thoughts!

When Max the bookmark went into a scary book, he couldn’t LOOK and he SHOOK and he SCREAMED, “GET ME OUT OF THIS BOOK!”

Then he learned to (1) breathe deeply, (2) make a plan, and (3) think positive thoughts—techniques used by the Navy SEALs. Max put his new tools into practice and now he’s brave enough to face a snake, yucky bugs, and even a seven-headed monster!

This humorous story packs a big punch as it introduces children to mindfulness, self-regulation, self-control, and other techniques for dealing with stress and overcoming fear.

Every copy of Get Me Out of This Book! comes with its very own pull-out Max the Bookmark. He’s ready to hold your place in any book and remind you of the rules and tools—just in case things get too scary.

Includes a “Max the bookmark” glued into every copy

This book teaches children to overcome fear.

The techniques for overcoming fear are based upon techniques used by the Navy Seals.

The book is funny as well and educational.

Publicity: National Review Coverage

“Books that help children deal with fear are always helpful when done right and this one is.” —School Library Journal


“Repetitive and at times rhyming, the text builds a rhythm that lends itself to read-alouds, especially for educators with students who seem to have difficulty regulating fear-related emotions…. An ambitious blending of emotional and psychological tools with fantasy that will serve the right reader well.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Traumatized by frightening illustrations (’I couldn’t LOOK and I SHOOK and I SCREAMED’), a timorous bookmark takes a course in how to cope with fear…. Infante effectively employs spiky shapes and garish colors to evoke the bookmark’s initial terror during its training. A serviceable addition to the shelf of advice about dealing with fears, boosted by a clever premise.”—Booklist
