Isaac is a second grader who struggles with waiting to be recognized by an adult. He’s a little impatient, and this can get him in trouble at school and in the world. When a tough problem has him stuck, Isaac blurts out. With patience, Isaac’s mom guides him through the steps of getting somebody’s attention, and she helps him with the problem. Isaac understands, but needs some practice!
Isaac’s adventures continue at the store, at home, and at school, where the adults are there to teach him even more skills like how to interrupt the right way!
Told in author Bryan Smith’s hallmark humorous style, follow Isaac as he learns how to wait his turn and to interrupt appropriately. This is the first book in a brand-new series by the award-winning author, counselor, and dad.

I know some teachers that are going to want this book right away! Patiently waiting to get help is one of those things that as adults we expect children to just catch on how to do. Some kids need explicitly taught this skill, and this book will make a great social story to do that. This child is in no way portrayed as a "problem child" which I appreciated, and was relatable. I will be purchasing this to read to small groups of students or one on one.
