Author Heather L. Nelsonabout this book: Minerva's Maneuvers is an informative and cute adventure story about a hyperactive little girl who cannot hold still. She is constantly in motion and always getting into trouble. Her parents are frustrated and don't know what to do to make her behave and hold still. She disrupts the classroom and frustrates her teacher. The teacher recommends that the parents consult a counselor, but before that can occur, a school field trip changes her life. The class visits a river to study the ecology system to learn how all life depends on each other. Minerva does not mind the teacher. A chance encounter gives Minerva purpose as she rescues a little dog from drowning. With the assistance of the little dog, she learns how to be in charge of her movements and actions. The benefit of pet therapy for hyperactivity, based on research, is portrayed in this story, which is written for ages 8-12, the ages when hyperactivity seems to be most prevalent. The author, Heather Nelson was hyperactive as a child and has raised hyperactive children. She knows first hand the benefits of pet therapy.
