This transitional book is about a boy who has trouble paying attention in school. When his parents finally take him to a doctor, Josh is diagnosed with ADD and given a medication. Soon the medicine begins to work and he is no longer bullied and even makes friends.

This book would gives students something to relate to and you could read this to discuss why you shouldn't pick on students who sometimes have a hard time learning.

When Josh's friends call him "Slosh", it's hard for him to deal with. Even though he's smart when it comes to computers and math, Josh also has ADHD--Attention Deficit with Hyperactivity Disorder.

Pay Attention, Slosh! is a book for students understanding ADHD and other learning disabilities. This book could be good to read to students when discussing all sorts of learning or could be an opener for an activity or a unit in the class.

Very realistic fiction! I would recommend this book to parents of a child newly diagnosed with ADHD. I think the child would be able to relate to Josh and maybe learn from him a little.
