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.

This book will get your child to read through funny tips on how to avoid reading. My daughter and her friends LOVE this book. It is also widely used in her elementary school.

I have 30 plus years of elementary school teaching background...and can truly appreciate the latest and greatest books, techniques, programs, etc. I am all for teaching in a way that will grab the contemporary child and help them learn. This book, however, is OVER THE TOP horrible. Are you kidding?? What an insult to reading and learning!! I can take a topic and mold it into a positive teaching tool as well as the next teacher...but this one is tooooo much of a stretch. I'm appaulded by it! There are way too many ideas for slacking off on real reading and there's very little, and way too subtle, thought given to the "apparently intended" reverse psychology involved here. I can't believe a book publisher published this...shame on you!

I got this book to teach a mini lesson on "fake reading and real reading". Unfortunately, it uses the word butt repeatedly. I teach in the Bible Belt and wouldn't be able to read this to my students. I thought it would be a cute, funny book to share at the beginning of the year when we start D.E.A.R. It just wasn't what I was looking for in a picture book.
