The Book

Many children in the US and other countries struggle with ADHD causing them to constantly fidget, focus, or even read a book for any length of time.  This book highlights some of the challenges that a child faces when diagnosed with this disorder.  

The book introduces young children to neurodiversity.  It is important to teach other children about it so they have empathy towards those who are challenged by it.  

The illustrations visually enrich the message of how neurodiversity impacts the mind of those with ADHD.  The rhyming structure of the text is off-metre in many places making the flow of the text awkward, especially if reading the book aloud.  It is a good book to teach empathy and inclusiveness to family members and classmates.  It would be a wonderful book to have in a classroom and added to an elementary school library.  The author herself has ADHD and wants to use this book to educate others about her experience with the disorder.  The author has included a list of strategies for managing ADHD.
