Birdie for Now is a story about growing up, and the young protagonist is not the only one doing the growing! Dickon is an year-old kid who is called Dick by his recently decamped father, Birdie by his mother, and various insulting epithets, such as Twitchy and Dizzy Duck, by his classmates who remember his pre-meds ADHD behaviour patterns. His mother is young, computer smart, and unsure of herself, but she has just got a proper job at a bank in the town in south-western Ontario where she grew up.
She and Dickon move into a cramped ugly house whose chief advantage in Dickon's eyes, disadvantage in his mother's, is that it backs on the Humane Society's field where their animals are exercised and where summer obedience-school classes are to be held. Dickon loves dogs; his mother hates and fears them, having been bitten as a child.
Dickon's determination that he will succeed in helping to train an abused, highly bred, Papillon bitch left at the Centre overcomes his mother's objections, and she allows him to have the dog, whose name, coincidentally, is also Birdie, home for a weekend's trial. Despite Birdie's several lapses on the housebreaking front, Dickon's mother finally realizes that, for the first time and all because of this little dog, her loving but totally impulse-driven son has managed to stay focused and on task, has taken responsibility effectively and willingly, and has made real friends with other children.

In deciding that she must allow Birdie to stay, she is tacitly allowing her "Birdie" to grow up and is, in fact, growing up herself. Jean Little loves dogs and obviously understands the bond that can form between dog and child. In Birdie for Now , she has also given real insight into how it feels to be ADHDthe urgent need for activity, the scatteredness of thought and the difficulty of keeping focused on anything.
In an unpedantic way, the book gently offers hope for both parents and children that it may sometimes be possible to find something that will be a key to helping manage their own ADHD problem.
