Unwrapping Some Illustrations for You

The Book

Many kids have a hard time focusing and understanding how to complete their homework.  They feel frustrated and inept and wonder why their friends can get it done with a snap of their fingers and they take so long to finish.  This book is a wonderful help for kids ( and their parents) as how this problem may get solved. 

Wade, a conscientious little boy, feels his brain doesn't work right after trying so hard and coming up with results which he thinks stink.  He gets discouraged and wants to throw in the towel.  Why even bother.  Then a miraculous thing happens to give Wade support and care.  Wade's Fantabulous Brain arrives on the scene and ta da!!! offers him assistance. He teaches the discouraged little guy to give his brain a tune up by reaching into his "Brain Tool Box" which will strengthen his learning skills and bring him success.  He is cautioned though that it will take time and a lot of hard work but it is doable.  He is instructed to reach out to others for help and don't feel bad in doing so.   With Wade's self confidence and self-esteem rising he discovers he is on a path to victory!   

The illustrations enrich the text and are very well done.  The message of the book is positive and encouraging to kids who struggle and it is a valuable resource for parents who desire to know how to help their child.   I highly, highly recommend this book.
