This deliciously entertaining and humorous chapter book gets top marks for presenting a delightfully quirky day in the life of an eight-year-old boy with Asperger's Syndrome.
Being eight, Connor knew a lot. He knew that Mrs. Winters did not like to be interrupted, but he was sure she would appreciate his fact-finding methods—and who wouldn' t want to know more about geckos? He knew he needed the new library book, "More All About Dogs," more than Jane needed to keep sitting on that stool—and he only nudged her off so he could reach it. On a day when everything seemed to go wrong, Connor turned out to be the only one who could save the school from a dog-caused Code Yellow!
Told from the point of view of a child with Asperger Syndrome, author Jodi Carmichael highlights some of the challenges—and triumphs—of experiencing a day at school from a different perspective.
