Over-Scheduled Andrew is about a Penguin named Andrew. He likes to act so he joins drama club. Then he joins a bunch of other clubs to help his performance in the drama club get better, like debate club, dance, karate, chess, etc. But when he starts to fall asleep when he is hanging out with his best friend – in the 15 minutes he has managed to carve out for her in his week that doesn’t interfere with all his clubs he realizes he may be taking on too much. And when his falling asleep ends up making something else terrible happen… Andrew decides to cut back on the clubs and involvement and add more time hanging out with his friends having fun!
A cute book that teaches you that even though you want to do it all, sometimes you just can’t. And spending time with your friends and having fun is important.
