Pay Attention, Emily Brown!by Linda Burton
Kids age 4-8
If you're the parent of a child with attention issues�ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, Down syndrome, or sensory processing disorder�then you'll want to share Pay Attention, Emily Brown! with your child. This fun picture book pairs whimsical illustrations with a mother's poetic pleas as she tries, in vain, to get the attention of her child.
Kids age 4-8 will gladly tune in to this book to enjoy Emily Brown�s flights of fancy and the lengths to which her mother goes to get Emily to focus. Wonderful word pictures, from silly to absurd, hold readers' attention, and eye-catching artwork captures each entertaining moment.
Just think, Emmy Brown, for a moment or two�
Suppose that I told you my toes had turned blue?
Suppose that I started to fly overhead?
Or spread candy and presents all over your bed?
If I hung upside down by an arm and a knee
do you think, Emmy Brown, you would listen to me?
Pay Attention, Emily Brown! celebrates the imagination of all children, but especially those whose minds seem to wander a bit more than others, and offers a reminder that humor is both a sanity-saver and relationship-soother.
