My Brother's a World-Class Pain : A Sibling's Guide to Adhd-Hyperactivity by Michael Gordon "The big sister in this book is a great story teller! She explains in kids' words the condition her brother has and how they handle it. She is candid in saying it often bothers her, which is good because siblings can often bear the brunt of ADHD family/home problems. It's important that kids know what happens if they have a brother or sister with ADHD, what to expect, and how they can even help. My seven-year-old daughter has gained a lot of wisdom from it in trying to understand her cousin who has this condition! I recommend it."
A Terrible Thing Happened by Margaret M. Holmes (Excellent book about a child who saw a "terrible thing" and how it affected his life. He begins to feel better when he begins to talk to an adult. This book I feel would be especially helpful for any child who has been exposed to any trauma and he/she would learn that they are not alone with their feelings).
Adam and the Magic Marble by Adam & Carol Buehrens (A delightful adventure book about 3 boys. One has cerebral palsy and the other two have Tourette syndrome. They find a magic marble with magic powers and accidentally it becomes aimed at the bullies. I recommend this book to any child who has a disorder that makes them feel different from their peers).
Depression is the Pits, But I'm Getting Better: A Guide for Adolescents by E. Jane Garland, M.D. (An excellent book for teens who are experiencing any level of depression. One of the key things I found in the book is the reminder to tell someone and it discusses the best people to tell, such as mental health professionals. Discusses the symptoms and types of depression, how to get help, discusses medication, counseling and provides personal stories of another teen's experience with depression. This book could save lives).
The Other Me : Poetic Thoughts on ADD for Adults, Kids and Parents by Wilma R. Fellman, Arnold C. Fellman (Illustrator), Arthur L. Robin "Wilma Fellman has given us a true gift of herself by letting us see inside. In the process, she helps us all become a bit more forgiving and understanding of ourselves. Through her humor and sensitivity, she captures the feeling of what it's like to live in an ADD body and with an ADD mind. "The Other Me" can help those who are coping with their ADD all alone feel less isolated and more understood. For others, this collection of poems will bring waves of identification, as they find that one special piece that describes their private experiences in such a clear and moving way."
Putting on the Brakes : Young People's Guide to Understanding Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder by Patricia O. Quinn, Judith M. Stern, Michael Chesworth (Illustrator) "I felt it put me closer with my son, since I could better understand what the ADHD was about from a different point of view. It was like being inside the mind of a child with ADHD. When I react now, I think a lot more before making a rash outburst, because I know my son will be thinking "Gosh - whats the big problem?". Thank-you for letting me get closer to understanding what a child with ADHD goes through."
