Tired of School

18 Mar
“Tired of School” is a very cute story, much like McCullough’s first book, “Tired of My Bath.” It’s a nice story that kids will enjoy, and will be able to easily pick up the rhythm and rhyme. Jonathan Smith Elementary School Librarian I have used the book, “Tired of My Bath” during classroom guidance lessons for K-2nd grade. I found it a fun way to teach personal hygiene to young children. Renae Irving School Counselor, Hanford Dole Elementary School “Tired of My Bath” is an excellent book for integrating music with language arts and reading because of the rhythm and rhyme. It is a fun read for children K-2nd grade. Dawna Kluttz Music Specialist The book, Tired of School, is the second book in the John Allen series. John Allen is a little boy who is tired of many things. In this book, he is tired of school but soon realizes that school can be fun when he learns new things and meets a special friend. In the first book, Tired of My Bath, John Allen finds a bath is just what he needs. Louie, John Allen’s cute dog is with him throughout his adventures. These books, written in rhythm and rhyme, are perfect for emerging and reluctant readers, but even older children like them.
