Anyone who teaches kids 3rd grade and up will want to read this book out loud at the beginning of school! This is also a great book to loan to parents of those kids---a nice way to give parents some suggestions when they say, "How can I get my child to do their homework?"

This book is a sure way to get children laughing their way through homework. The meaningful jokes (by meaningful I mean that they are almost subliminally coaxing kids to do homework) are miracles. This writing style should be used more often! If the author comes out with other informative, witty and adorable books, I will be the first customer!

I have read many long, complex books on studying and study tips. Soon after using the complicated methods, I stumbled across this book. It was refreshingly simple and effective without any sort of complicated methods. A good reminder for the overwhelmed.

This book is with out a dout the 2nd best book I have ever read! No offense to the author, but I loved The Diary Of A Killer Cat by Anne Frank. I think this book was not only for teachers, adults, counslers. I think this book would be most entertaining to students like me. I am a student and I read this book every night before I go to bed. I'd give this book 6 STARS!!!

My 11 year old son rolled his eyes when I handed him this book. I came back a half an hour later and he had finished it! He was so excited and told me so many things on how he can do his homework better. He said it was very funny also. He learned a lot and really enjoyed the book!

Nobody likes homework these days. I can say not even I do. Well the book I read was How to Do Your Homework Without Throwing Up by Trevor Romian. The book was all about homework obviously, it also explains why it's good for you, the purpose of homework, and why it helps us in school. It also explains to you the emotions and feelings you might get when you're doing your homework. People might get sad, confused, frustrated etc. Then you have to think they didn't come up with homework just to bug us.

I like this book because it's exciting and it's something I'm interested in. It's easy to connect in a way, because at times when I'm doing my homework I do get confused and think that homework is there for no reason and as your reading the book you can compare yourself to the book in several ways. I would recommend this book to people who like funny books but also books that you can connect to. If you like books that teach you a lesson in life, and what homework is good for, read this one!

Cute idea and had some points that made sense, but not substantial enough to make it worth the purchase price. My daughter, a voracious reader, read it that afternoon and promptly forgot about it. I also read through it and found it to be "light". If you have a child that really has serious issues even touching their homework - this may help to start a conversation, but it isn't the answer to the problem.

The author really knows how to get down to the child's level as he presents his ideas. Children enjoy taking his advice. It is a big help. Sometimes the resistance is the biggest issue. Sometimes not knowing how to do the work is a big issue which the child denies. This book helps children feel like trying and asking for help when needed. Another book that does this for the K-3 children is Little Lemon by Betsy Lee. I didn't see a place for recommending a book in addition to this one so I thought I'd mention it in the review.

You know the phrase, "A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down." Well, this book gives a spoonful of laughter to help the homework "go down" without "throwing up." The clever use of artwork and text really gets kids involved in getting the job done instead of spending so much time complaining. There are many practical ideas and they are presented in a highly motivational way. I suggest reading it with children and discussing it rather than just handing them the book.

This is a super quick read book, loads of laughs, and I think it really gives kids a different perspective on homework. The gist of the book is that you have to do the homework no matter what, so just do it. The book just says this in a funny way though. Great for my 4th grade son who hates homework.
