Editorial Reviews

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

Read, America! Selection

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.

    My fifth graders can now do homework without throwing up :-D

    I shared this book with my fifth grade class and they just ate it up. We read it together using an overhead projector, and now there is a waiting list for my students to check the book out of my library! I was having some big problems with class resposnibility towards homework, but now there are fewer excuses. We've even adapted a saying from the book, "We are not afraid of homework, homework is afraid of us!"
