From the Publisher

“A deceptively simple approach to dealing with a difficult issue faced by millions of children every day.”—School Library Journal

“A must-read.”—Children’s Digest

“Helpful without being preachy.”—Florida Times-Union

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6Contrary to what children believe, homework is not meant to make them miserable. It is a serious business, however, and one of the great things about it is that "you get to do it at home." This and other homework homilies, along with strategies for getting tasks done, are presented in a humorous, lively format with black-and-white cartoon drawings. Designed to make kids laugh while recognizing the importance of school assignments, this is a great little paperback for parents and educators to share with those who think homework is the bane of childhood.Pamela K. Bomboy, Chesterfield County Public Schools, VA
