About the Author:

Nancy Carlson is the author and illustrator of over 60 picture books including bestseller I Like Me! Nancy graduated from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. When Nancy is not drawing pictures and writing stories you can find her hiking, biking, or playing golf!

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
