I Can’t Sit Still

Titles in Barron’s Live and Learn series are sensitively written picture storybooks that take a child’s point of view–especially in regard to kids who need encouragement in the face of an emotional or a physical difficulty. Following each story are four pages of suggested activities that relate to its theme, followed by a two-page section that offers advice to parents. Live and Learn titles are also available in Spanish language editions under the series title Vive y aprende. Here is the story of a child who has ADHD–attention-deficit disorder–and is mistakenly perceived as being unruly and incapable of following instructions. Ultimately, this little boy overcomes this problem with help from the family doctor, his parents, and his teacher.
