Editorial Reviews

Review

I would commend this book as an excellent work to alleviate patients' and parents' concerns, and to introduce the condition to those who may be having difficulty seeing any positives in their lives at the time of diagnosis.

All Dogs Have ADHD takes an inspiring and affectionate look at Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), using images and ideas from the canine world to explore a variety of traits that will be instantly recognisable to those who are familiar with ADHD. Following the style of the award-winning All Cats Have Asperger Syndrome, charming colour photographs of dogs bring to life familiar ADHD characteristics such as being restless and excitable, getting easily distracted, and acting on impulse. This delightful book combines humour with understanding to reflect the difficulties and joys of raising a child with ADHD and celebrates what it means to be considered `different'. This absorbing and enjoyable book takes a refreshing approach to understanding ADHD.

I am a special education teacher of eighth grade students who have learning disabilities and other health impairments, such as ADHD. I too have ADHD as well as two of my children. This book brought a great sense of relief, as well as identity for my students. They, like myself, felt that the book describes ADHD in a way that is unlike others we have seen before. It is not written in a negative fashion. It is an encouragement to anyone who has ADHD. Instead of focusing on all of the negatives of ADHD the book finishes with saying that an individual who has ADHD has unlimited potential...which is what a lot of ADHDer's need to hear rather than how "annoying" we are. We were all placed on this Earth for a reason, maybe it is to teach each other patience, love, and compassion for ALL.

Honestly, I would have bought this book for the coffee-out-the-nose funny title and cover. However my cousin's son, David, has ADHD, and it proved to be a perfect Christmas gift. Yes, he opened it already. He has ADHD. Nonetheless I was fortunate enough to be there to see David and his Mom as they turned thought the pages for the very first time. I made a wise choice. While I will always approve of almost any book that exposes children to dogs, this is a book of hope and understanding. I'd recommend `All Dogs Have ADHD' not only for families living with ADHD or other learning disorders, but as a gift for teachers and as a donation for libraries. The cuteness is just a bonus!

I usually hate this kind of cutesy anthropomorphizing animal photograph books, but I couldn't help buying it when I realized how clever and thoughtful it was. I sent this book to my grandson. He is a Russian adoptee who has been at a residential treatment center. He has been diagnosed with multiple problems and has been on all sorts of heavy medications since he was five.
Despite much of his treatment (some of it quite harsh and misguided) he has remained a delightful, loving, spiritual child-- a true puppy dog of loyalty, passion and occasional guilt! This book is so so so appropriate for him! He LOVES it and showed it to all of the staff and teachers at the center. They loved it too. I think it is the best gift I ever gave him. The hope and affection that is the grounding of the book is the very best therapy he can have. Thanks for the insight and sensitivity of the author in putting this book together.

Since buying the first copy of this book (ADD is the same as ADHD, basically) for myself, I have bought at least 12 additional copies to give to my entire family and close friends. It is like a small child's picture book, each page featuring one large, adorable photo of a dog (many varieties) in action and one simple sentence at the bottom explaining the dog's point of view.
The photos are delightful, and people of ALL ages would enjoy looking at them. Each sentence is easy to understand and will make the reader smile.
Put together in the book, the difficult-to-understand, logic-defying disorder called Attention Deficit (Hyperactivity) Disorder becomes clear to those who do not have it. No, we who have ADD/ADHD have been called lazy, stupid, crazy, or other untrue names since our early school years, and many of us believe these negative names are true. Even the ADD deniers may change their minds after reading this book.

This book talks about ADHD traits, with dog pictures illustrating the text. I started out laughing-whoo boy, did that describe my kid!-and ending up almost crying, as it is spot on about the misunderstandings. My 11-yr-old loved it also. It's good for when a lift is needed.

I work with dyslexics - covering reading, math and ADHA. This book had just arived as I started work with a very ADHD 13 year old. I loaned it to his granddad and my client was reading it on his way home. Granddad said my client was sitting in the back saying, "Yep, uh hun, right," etc. It hits the nail on the head without being condemning or berating. It gives the reader something to think about or to re-think their view of ADHD. Every parent of a ADHD child should have this book to read again and again as a gentle, fun, insightful reminder.

Working with special needs children and adolescents I have never had Hooperman's books far from my side. Stylistically similar to "all cats have asperger syndrome," "all dogs have ADHD," manages to be charming and informative, without being condescending to the reader. It shares the hurry, hurry, happy, happy, joy, joy, features of ADHD, as well as the very concrete concerns of what it is like to live with this often misunderstood condition. If you know, love, or work with an ADHD child, this book should be moved up to the top of your reading list.

This book gives you a real glimpse into the child's world in a humourous and delightful manner...Allowing the child, parents, family and educators to put ADHD in perspective and simplify rather than complicate their responses. Your child, though far more intelligent than an animal, needs to have compassion, humour and love to grow into the very amazing person they are meant to be. A pictorial view with an accurate message...Keep your approach simple and do not write the child off. Bless the author...I found it worth more than a thousand words!
