Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-Jimmy can't ever sit still in class, and Mr. Jugardor encourages the other students to be tolerant of him. When the children wriggle and jump about after the teacher asks them to put ladybugs down their shirts, they understand what it's like to have A.D.D., just like Jimmy. Wyrick's illustrations almost resemble Tedd Arnold's work, with their bold, cheerful colors and black outlining. Unfortunately, the story is marred by cutesy names (Jimmy Jumpingbean, Sandy Sitstill, Brucie Big, etc.) and poor grammar ("Everyone raised their hand"). Mark Smith's Pay Attention, Slosh! (Albert Whitman, 1997), while written for a slightly older audience, deals with A.D.D. without sacrificing writing quality.-Linda Beck, Indian Valley Public Library, Telford, PA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
