Asher is a little boy with things to do, but it’s hard to pick just one. There are cookies to eat and blocks to build. Everything’s so much fun! He has trouble focusing on only one task and finds himself doing too many things at once. But when his family’s care gets bumped by a distracted driver, Asher soon learns that trying to do two things at once doesn’t work out so well.
“When you do you schoolwork, you can’t also play,
Do one thing at a time—it’s better that way.
With two things at once, you’ll mess up it’s true,
But not if you concentrate on one thing, then two . . .”
Asher and his school chums learn an important lesson about things we shouldn’t try to do at once, as attorney/author/safety advocate Mark M. Bello and illustrator Melinda Falgoust, the creative team behind of the award-winning Happy Jack—Sad Jack, a Bullying Story, team up again to present this delightful and compelling story in rhyme. Indeed, the lesson that Asher and your children learn in this enjoyable book is important, not just for children, but for people of all ages.
“When you drive, you must keep your eyes straight ahead.
But this man was looking at his phone instead . . .
One thing at a time is what I will do,
I can’t button my shirt while tying my shoe . . .”
Indeed, the lesson that Asher and your children learn in this enjoyable book is important, not just for children, but for people of all ages. The rather serious issue of distracted driving is compared with the decisions children make daily—What should I do—One thing or two? Hopefully, the many relatable choices will underscore this important lesson for later in life.
“That’s Asher’s story, I hope you can tell,
Doing two things at once doesn’t work out so well.”
