Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3-Jimmy can't ever sit still in class, and Mr. Jugardor encourages the other students to be tolerant of him. When the children wriggle and jump about after the teacher asks them to put ladybugs down their shirts, they understand what it's like to have A.D.D., just like Jimmy. Wyrick's illustrations almost resemble Tedd Arnold's work, with their bold, cheerful colors and black outlining. Unfortunately, the story is marred by cutesy names (Jimmy Jumpingbean, Sandy Sitstill, Brucie Big, etc.) and poor grammar ("Everyone raised their hand"). Mark Smith's Pay Attention, Slosh! (Albert Whitman, 1997), while written for a slightly older audience, deals with A.D.D. without sacrificing writing quality.

Format: Paperback
Audrey Penn does a great job explaining the way a child with ADD/ADHD has to cope with ADD/ADHD. The teacher in the book starts off by talking about walking in someone elses shoes. Although it is hard to understand ADD/ADHD if you don't have it, this book shows a great example of what it is like to have ADD/ADHD. My husband and I read it in the pediatricians office and then bought it for our son. I also recommend this book to teachers to read to there students.

Format: Paperback
...and have a good time. I suppose this "author" was trying to promote the message that it's not little "Jimmy's" fault that he's a reckless little monster who tries to destroy the lives of those around him. Whatever Jimmy feels like getting away with, let him now attribute to his A.D.D. But mommy, but teacher, it was only my A.D.D. acting up. Ohhhh, ok then Jimmy, go about your business as usual.

Then there's the issue of the "teacher" having the kids put ladybugs down the kids shirts. Ok. Putting aside the deviant tendancies there, why not put ants in their pants? Then, why not shove bamboo rods under their fingernails? Brilliant idea.

This is a horrible little tale, one designed only to continue the current line of no-one should be accountable for their actions - it's all the fault of something else - kind of thinking. Furthermore, it's done by an "author" who can scarcely string together two sentences.

Avoid at all costs.
