Titles in Barron's "Live and Learn " series are sensitively written picture storybooks that take a child's point of view, especially in regard to kids who need encouragement in the face of an emotional or a physical difficulty. 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. I Can't Sit Still is the story of a child who has ADHD - attention deficit hyperactivity disorder - and is mistakenly perceived as being unruly and incapable of following instructions. Ultimately, this little boy overcomes this problem with help from the family doctor, his parents, and his teacher.
