Over-Scheduled Andrew

We rated this book:


Andrew is a young boy with a lot to do. Because he loves putting on plays, he joins a drama club. To improve his performance skills, he also joins a debate club. And then chess club, and dance, and karate, and so on until he has so many activities to do that he hardly gets to play with his best friend and can’t keep everything straight anymore.

Ashley Spires has created a realistic, yet fun, story of a young child with too much going on in their lives. Although Andrew means well with each new club he joins, he ultimately learns that one person can’t do everything. He learns to pare back on his extra activities and to only stick with a few that he really, truly, loves. It’s a good message for children, and their caregivers, told in an upbeat and fun way. The whimsical illustrations fit right in with the message of the story, working together with the text to create a great picture book for modern kids.
