9780761389460: Sit Still! (Nancy's Neighborhood)

At school, at home, on the bus, or in a restaurant - no matter how hard he tries, Patrick just can't sit still. So what's a kid with a lot of energy supposed to do? His teacher and the doctor may not have the answer, but Patrick's mom has several ideas... Nancy Carlson's lively, cheerful illustrations and her trademark sense of humor provide warm reassurance in the funny and inspirational story that will speak to squirmy kids everywhere.

From Booklist:

Ages 5^-8. This interesting offering may cause some controversy. Patrick is a boy who can't sit still, despite the fact that everyone (his parents, the bus driver, and, especially, his teacher) implores him to do just that. The teacher has Patrick's mother bring Patrick to a "special doctor," who decides there is nothing wrong with him except that he can't sit still. So Patrick's mom decides to keep her son busy bowling, singing in the choir, helping the crossing guard, and doing extra tasks at school; soon, sitting still is no longer a problem. The book has some strong pluses. Carlson's artwork is always lively, and that energy works especially well here. Also, kids who are hyperactive will appreciate seeing one of their own portrayed in a positive light. On the other hand, for a percentage of hyperactive children, this solution seems simplistic. There is certainly an antimedication sentiment surrounding the hyperactivity debate, but medication has helped many children. And although it may be reasonable to suggest that parents try to keep children busy, how would this translate to the school environment, where teachers have to cope with lots of students with various problems? How people react to this book may depend on their own experiences. Ilene Cooper
