I've been a substitute teacher for most of this year and have shared this book with almost every 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade classroom that I've been in. Everyone has loved this book and the children have really connected with it. I've been teaching 3rd grade since April and the children love this book - I shared it with them when I first started in the class (after hearing the groans when I'd put "Read 20 minutes" up on the board for their homework). The kids really love Arthur and Henry's suggestions and their refrain of "eyes on book, butt on chair" has been a staple in the classroom - I always remind them, "What do Arthur and Henry say?" when they are off-task and they sheepishly repeat the mantra to me. Definitely recommended!

Format: Hardcover
This is how a typical 10 year old boy would talk. The book is just a light funny story from the perspective of kids. I have heard most of these same stratagies from my boy. Very typical kids. Funny story.
