This book is right on target for helping overly active children to gain self-control. It is a realistic memory cue that fits naturally into the story line. Other help is also given. The discussion questions help the overly active child and they help his or her peers. They talk about nicknames, helping others, and other things that help parents and teachers with a good discussion. I'm glad they do not use words like ADHD. Overly active children can be that way for lots of reasons besides ADHD.
