Review:
" 'David Sheldon, you are distracting your neighbor again,' said Mrs. Gorski with her serious voice. 'You are going to have to stop making that noise with your pencil!'" It seems that David has the "wiggle fidgets." His mind wanders, his legs want to move. He thinks of the greatest ideas and inventions, and wants to show everyone. But he doesn't think through the consequences of his actions - or experiments.

When David's teacher, Mrs. Gorski, calls his parents in for a conference, David decides to come up with a cure for the wiggle-fidgets. To help focus and think, he creates reminder cards for his desk. When he really feels fidgety, he'll hold a small stress ball. And when he needs to move his legs, he suggests to Mrs. Gorski that he erase the chalkboard or help pass out papers. And Mrs. Gorski agrees.
