Book Synopsis



Being a verb is hard!

Especially for Louis, who can't seem to control himself when he gets the urge to move at the wrong time and situation.

My knees start itching.
My toes start twitching.
My skin gets jumpy.
Others get grumpy.

Louis' mom comes to the rescue by teaching him techniques to help keep his inner itching, twitching and jumping to be a verb in check.

A positive resource for anyone dealing with ADHD or challenged by someone who has ADHD.



Review Quotes




I cried reading this book. My 7yo son has been struggling with ADHD, and like many parents, I tried everything. Oils, vitamins, diet changes, act. I have never been someone who likes giving medicine to my children, but after reading this book, I finally took him in to see a specialist. He was given medication, and doubled his reading and math scores in the first 2 weeks. They no longer want to put him in special ed, or hold him back.
I will admit that it wasn't just about not wanting to put him on meds. It was the stigma of parents that do. "Oh it's so easy to just drug your kids" or "It's lazy parenting." - but after reading this book, and the look on my son's face when he identified with it, I finally got him the help he needed.
Thank you! This book was such a blessing. I now understand how he feels, and can be a better parent.

I love this delightful, wonderful book - which is filled with heart and humor. This is a "must" in the homes of families who have young children with ADHD.
