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.

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.

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 rated this book 4 stars instead of 5 stars ONLY because I think that the "All Cats Have Aspergers" is a bit better - but this book is outstanding to explain to kids (of all ages) what it must feel like to have ADHD. It treats the subject in a humorous way, but this author understands the problems that come with ADHD. Not all ADHD kids have exactly the same issues, not all of them will have everything this book shows, but they should find enough of themselves to understand themselves better... And that they're NOT the only ones struggling with these issues. Great job, wish I thought of this series myself! I've recommended both of these books to SPED teachers, they're great to leave out for kids to flip through.

What a gem of a book! As with "All cats have Asperger syndrome", the author manages to explain about ADD and ADHD with simple sentences. The result is an informative book which in few pages basically say the same as many experts need hundreds of pages to express. This book is full of charm and humour. The concept may seem childish, the result is not.

My diagnosis is AS, yet I recognised myself in several statements in this one, leading me to suspect even stronger that I have ADD as well as AS.

This is an excellent read for anyone who have one of the conditions and for those who deals with them, in the family or at work/school.

If you simply like dogs without being very interested in ADHD, you'll still enjoy this one, as there are lovely dogs on every page!
