Jumpin' Johnny Get Back to Work! : A Child's Guide to Adhd/Hyperactivity by Michael, Ph.D. Gordon "I bought this book for my 6-year-old nephew and will read it to him when he comes to live with us soon. I can't wait, because it is so simply written and straightforward, I'm sure it will help him understand what we have not been able to tell him about his ADHD condition. It is entertaining, and because it is told in a kid's point of view, it shows ADHD with concerns that kids would have that adults might not have even thought of. I recommend it if you're trying to find just the right way of reaching your child or student!"
Taking A.D.D. to School : A School Story About Attention Deficit Disorder and/or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (Special Kids in School) by Ellen Weiner, Terry Ravanelli (Illustrator), Kim Gasselin (Editor) "Ben is having trouble in school. It's hard to concentrate and his teachers always tell him to pay attention. A trip to the doctor reveals that Ben has Attention Deficit Disorder. Written for children from Ben's perspective, this book is well suited for reading aloud in the classroom. Will help kids understand A.D.D. and A.D.H.D. as well as educate parents, teachers, caregivers, etc. A quiz for kids and Ten Tips for Teachers included. Wonderfully illustrated!"

Assists children diagnosed with the ADHD in understanding their disorder and their symptoms. Gives advice on such things as how to get organized, improving study habits, following directions, understanding medications and making friends. I recommend this to all children this age who suffer from the ADHD).

Excellent workbook for children and adolescents helping them to understand the ADHD and provides many activities teaching skills, problem solving, organizing and much more. Strong Recommended).
Sparky's Excellent Misadventures: My A.D.D. Journal Be Me (Sparky) by Phyllis Carpenter, Marti Ford. (Excellent book that reads like a first person journal of a young child dealing with the ADD. He discusses things like "Daddy yelled at me because I forgot to put my bike away at night...Dad said that everyone has different stuff to learn about themselves and my stuff is called Attention Deficit Disorder." Very delightful book that every child can relate to and understand their disorder better and know they are not alone).
