This book is about David that can’t sit still in class.
David doesn’t know how he ends up in such situations. At the time, it just seems like a great idea.
All the reviews on Amazon are good, and I totally agree! It reminds me a little of my middle son who if he sees a button he must press it. It’s like an irresistible urge strikes him. But in this case David is in class and annoying the teacher.
For me it highlighted the difference in types of learning for kids. Some children learn better lectured in a classroom, but many learn better for by ‘doing’ and interacting. So many great ideas so little time.
I help with the local hands on science museum and see it all the time – where kids come in, try things, and leave excited about everything they have tried. They also remember more of what they learned!
This is one of four books in the series about children who learn differently. Each of the books explains different learning challenges (dyslexia, difficulty with timed tests, handwriting and ADHD) in kid friendly lingo. The only problem with this book is that it’s not as easy to share and pass around to everyone you know. I would love to pass a copy to the teachers we interact with.
