Louis is a verb! He has a lot of trouble focusing and he is always doing something, but the problem is usually it's the wrong something. It's hard to be a verb! My knees start itching, my toes start twitching, my skin gets jumpy, others get grumpy. When it comes to sitting still it's just not my deal. Haven't you heard... I am a verb! Louis mom teaches him how to focus by showing him a few hands on ideas that anyone can try. A must have book for all who struggle with paying attention!

We have a 4 year old son that like most boys has a hard time sitting still. It's a great book with catchy little sayings, good suggestions on how to deal with the wiggles and a very sweet ending.
