Review by: boredandblue2 on June 7, 2016 :
Robb Lightfoot shares stories from his own childhood as a hyperactive boy trying to make sense out of a world which has little patience for him. Young Robb inability to decipher pretty much any of the social cues children are expected to understand combined with his boundless energy lead to some very funny experiences. His description of a boy trying to capture bees in a jar is dead on. The adults surrounding young Robb are of little help. His father is impatient, his mother’s accepting, and his teachers are clueless.
Occasionally the tales feel exaggerated for the sake of humor, which is too bad because reality is more touching. In addition, the author only shares humorous stories. A few poignant or sad memories would give a more rounded view of Robb’s childhood troubles.
This book should be required reading for elementary school teachers. It gives a clear look in to young boy’s thought processes.
I want to thank the author for giving me the opportunity to read this book. Disclaimer: The author gave me an advanced copy in exchange for this review.
