Jimmy behaves like a wiggle-worm. He squirms. He fidgets. He calls out in class and just can't settle down. "What is wrong with Jimmy?" his friend, the narrator of the story, asks. Jimmy's mother likens his behavior to a motor stuck in high gear and takes him to see a doctor who gently talks about ADHD, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Working as a team, Jimmy, his mom and his doctor institute a plan to help Jimmy take better control of his time and make wiser choices. Designed to help and teach kids, parents, educators and caregivers to open discussions about hyperactivity and other learning disorders, this comforting and charming rhyming story reassures youngsters with ADHD that they are not to blame for their "racing motors."
