(back cover) Live and Learn I can't sit still! Lucas is a child who can't sit still. He always forgets to raise his hand in class and he never waits his turn. He finds it very hard to follow rules. During recess, the other children don't want him on their team because he doesn't play by the rules of the game. He can't control himself because he has a behavioral disorder called ADHD, which leads him to act without thinking. Because ADHD makes him hyperactive and unable to concentrate easily, he is unable to keep his things and his room in order. Lucas's life gets better when his parents take him to see a doctor. With professional help, Lucas learns how to deal with his attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and bring it under control. From then on, everything becomes easier and more fun for Lucas.
A child who has ADHD--attention deficit disorder--is mistakenly perceived as being unruly and incapable of following instructions, however, with help from his doctor, parents and teacher, he is able to overcome this challenge; following each story are four pages of suggested activities that relate to its theme, followed by a two-page section that offers advice to parents.
