I recently ordered Bubble Gum Brain, by Julia Cook, and absolutely love this book! My students are loving it as well (it may help that I let them chew gum while we read it). You can also purchase an activity guide to go along with this book. I did not purchase the activity guide so I can't say much about it. Unfortunately, I don't think it was available when I purchased the book and I am out of funds for the school year (major bummer).
Book Description: Meet Bubble Gum Brain and Brick Brain: two kids with two VERY different mindsets. Bubble Gum Brain likes to have fun adventures, learn new things, and doesn't worry about making great mistakes. Brick Brain is convinced that things are just fine the way they are and there's not much he can do to change them, so why try? When Bubble Gum Brain shows Brick Brain how to peel off his wrapper, Brick Brain begins to realize just how much more fun school...and life..can be!
