Norman David Edwards, better known as Noodle, has a problem; a big problem. Noodle is constantly being told what to do.
“Noodle do this. Noodle do that.
Please do it RIGHT NOW. You must feed the cat.”
But Noodle’s problem is that there are so many other things he would rather do instead!
Once again Noodle is facing the realities of childhood. In The PROcrastinator, Noodle learns the importance of doings things right when his mother (and teacher) asks him to do them, rather than putting them off till later.
As Noodle’s week progresses his cat gets hungrier, the trash piles up, and his poetry homework is no closer to getting done.
Written for children in grades K-6, this book creatively highlights a conundrum that all children struggle with and offers simple strategies to help them learn how to balance doing what needs to be done while still finding time for fun.
This book is part of the Responsible ME! series from Boys Town Press, and an activity book is available in support of the titles in this series.
