This Morning Sam Went to Mars (hardcover) A book about paying attention Nancy Carlson
Eight-year-old Sam is always daydreaming about exploring space and the deepest seas, which is awesome—except when he’s supposed to be focusing on schoolwork or stuff at home. It seems like all he hears is, “Focus, Sam!” and “Pay attention!” The doctor says Sam is lucky: He has a very powerful brain! But he does need some help focusing. She gives Sam and his dad lots of strategies to try to improve focus, like staying organized, eating better food, and asking for help when he needs it. Sam’s favorite strategy? Make time for imagination!
