Herman Jiggle has something he wants to say. He doesn't like recess anymore. And it's NOT because he's kinda sorta shy. Herman is frustrated because recess isn't fun when other kids do things that make it not fun. Like, when you play tag, it isn't supposed to hurt. Or when you play on the playground, you aren't supposed to wind up getting woodchips dumped on your head. And it isn't very fair when kids change the rules so that they are the ones who always win. Herman's caring teacher decides to help all the children understand the importance of following rules and procedures – at recess and other places too. Will Herman see the value in getting fresh air and moving your body? Will he be able to find ways to have fun, not stress, at recess? Awardwinning author, educator, and parenting expert Julia Cook offers a story to which every Prek 5 teacher and student will relate. Remarkable illustrations by New York Times bestselling author and illustrator Michael Garland will capture and keep the reader's attention.
