Description


In a compelling and beautifully illustrated story, award-winning author Douglas Wood tells of the teacher who led him to love reading, in spite of his ADHD.
Douglas is the youngest, smallest, and newest student in his second-grade class, and he doesn't like reading. He doesn't like sitting still. And he doesn't like Miss Little, especially when she makes him stay after class day after day, forcing him to sound out lines and blobs and squiggles when he'd rather be throwing a football. Luckily Douglas likes the pictures in the book Miss Little has chosen for him, pictures that remind him of the lake his family visits every summer. Award-winning author Douglas Wood -- the boy in the story -- alludes to scenes from The Little Island, the first book that enticed him to read, in a tale that will resonate with many children with ADHD. It is also a heartwarming ode to a special teacher whose gentle persistence changed one little boy's life forever.
