I have a child with ADD and have built up a large collection of books about the subject but this is absolutely the BEST book I've found which is specifically written FOR children. There are other books for children out there but they all far short of this one. Why? First of all, this book truly seems to have been written with an understanding of how to reach an ADD kid. The text is clear, easily understood and to the point. For kids who don't want to read long, detailed paragraphs, there are checklists and other tools to maintain attention. Secondly, this book packs a lot of information on a wide variety of subjects that can be difficult for kids with ADD, from sports to friendships to schoolwork. Finally, there are practical and realistic suggestions for dealing with challenges - everything from making friends to learning how to pay attention and get work done at school. The author clearly knows about ADD and I've read this one with my child again and again (plus he's taken it to his room and read it alone numerous times).
This book is awesome! It is a self help book for kids that they find interesting. This book allowed me to get inside my childrens' minds and into their hearts without them realizing what was happening. A great way to examine how your child is really handling their ADD/ADHD, and the tools they can use to get the most out of themselves using simple steps. A great way to get the ADD'er to begin to compensate/ and adapt by learning to go through steps daily to improve their success in every task they endeavor. You have to get this one-It's small, practical, and full of common sense...my daughter reads it at night and keeps it by her bed. She is in 4th grade!
You know that ADD/ADHD kids need to learn to slow down and pay attention but just telling that doesn't work. This book helps them learn HOW to slow down, pay attention, and learn. My son and I like this book very much.
I love this book and so does my ADHD son! I like how it doesn't label the child and involves him in the process of self-evaluation. It was a delight for him when he read "this book is written just for you!" My son was engaged from the first page. I recommend this for every parent that wants to help their child learn more about themselves while maintaining self-worth. A must have!
My daughter was thrilled to get this book. She felt like the book spoke to her. She excitedly began reading it the minute I brought it home. HIGHLY RECOMMEDED!
I bought this book to my son's therapist who loved it. She read it to him over a few weeks... it does not use the title ADD in the book and leaves a lot of place for kids to solve their own problems and how to express them self. A great therapeutic tool... I plan to review it with him every so often it was a great buy...
