Ages 4 to 8 years. If you are the parent of a child with attention issues -- ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, Down syndrome, or sensory processing disorder -- then you will want to share this book 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. Children 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. The book celebrates the imagination of all children, but especially those whose minds seem to wander a bit more than others, and offers a reminder that humour is both a sanity-saver and relationship-soother.
