This first children's book by Ms. McCullough has bright illustrations and engaging rhyme. The main character, John Allen, wrestles with the monotony of attending school versus the freedom of summer, but finally comes to realize that summertime and school time have both good and not-so-good aspects, and he can enjoy life during both times. This is a great lesson in growing up.

Tired of School is a wonderful book little kids will really enjoy. It is easy to read and fun with its smooth flowing rhythm and rhyme. John Allen, the main character, is a thoughtful little boy who weighs the pros and cons about having to go to school and decides that school isn't so bad after all.

Tired of School. Who hasn't heard a youngster say something like this? This wonderful read-along book uses colorful illustrations and rhyming to teach K-2 students about the joys of learning. John Allen and his lovable dog, Louie - continued from Dicy McCullough's first book, Tired of My Bath, are characters that children identify with. The book addresses routine and rules which make for great discussion with children, as well.

I love the format with the large font, the bright colors, and the great illustrations. Kids will easily relate to John Allen and his feelings about school and his longing to do what he wants when he wants. A fun read!

Dicy McCullough is an up and coming children's author, and this picture book about John Allen (reads like a song, doesn't it?) is adorable. The prose is lyrical and the artwork simple and perfect for the age group. Nice colors. Love the size of the book and the large font. That's great both for the reader and the child for work with. Nice job on a first release.
