Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-5?Thinly veiled Sunday school lessons, complete with scripture verses, didacticism, and a proselytizing style. In Mystery, Dunkum's basketball, signed by Christian ballplayer David Robinson, disappears. Through a series of puzzles and codes, Dunkum, who attends church alone because his parents aren't Christian, finds his ball. Jason, the main character in No Grown-ups, has Attention Deficit Disorder and breaks his parents' house rules while they are away for the weekend. While both titles are poorly written and shallow in plot and characterization, No Grown-Ups is also inaccurate in presentation. Medicating ADD children is highly controversial and there is no scientific proof that chocolate and sugar make them hyperactive. It is a disservice to these youngsters to perpetuate such misconceptions. Unnecessary purchases.?Pamela K. Bomboy, Chesterfield County Public Schools, VA

HASH(0xa25c8b34) out of 5 stars Rebellious Jason Nov. 6 2006
By Julie Norman - Published on
Format: Paperback
Jason is tired of being told what he can't eat and taking his medicine. When he finds his grandma is coming to watch him while his parents are away, he decides that this is his opportunity to rebel! His friends know that he's up to something and try to help him out. But Jason is determined; he eats his mother's Valentine chocolates, does not take his medicine and stays up late watching a scary movie. Jason learns his lesson by the results of his own actions.

Another fun story in the series. All of these are safe, this one is only slightly scary (snow monster dream) if a child is sensitive.
HASH(0xa25c8f3c) out of 5 stars Opens up discussions if a parent is willing to engage it! Dec 16 2015
By Prayer Pal - Published on
Format: Paperback
I've seen other reviews fussing about this one dealing with the topic of ADD - well if they had read the first 3 books they'd see that they hinted at it earlier in the series. (I remember for sure book 3 mentioned he was on medication). I have 3 girls, 8, 5 and 2 - it opened the door for questions "What is ADD - Why did he not want to take his medication?, Why couldn't he have the candy? Why didn't his friends tell an adult cause they knew it was bad for him?!" "He knew he didn't take his meds why didn't he tell?" so many other good talking points. The "Snow Creature" caused a little more of an urgency to finish reading the book in one night instead of breaking it up into a couple of nights cause each chapter ended on a major (to a child) cliff hanger and because my girls have a vivid imagination it was best if they heard the end that night.

Scripture was on point - obeying the father and mother for it is right in the Lord's eyes. Jason learns the hard way why the rules are there, why he has to take his medication and stay away from candy - even though it was tempting. He learned the "hard way" why he has too do those things and felt a conviction for not doing those things.
