Editorial Reviews

Review

The author uses adorably cute photos of dogs to illustrate common traits of ADHD. This book will be a helpful addition to the professional library because it can serve as a tool to help children or adults to understand what it may be like to live with ADHD. -- Jaime Parker, Librarian, Irving Independent School District, Irving, TX Two books (All Cats Have Asperger Syndrome and All Dogs Have ADHD both by Kathy Hoopmann) that use a novel, photographic approach to exploring the characteristic personality traits of ADHD and Asperger's Syndrome... Must-have titles for parents with children diagnosed with either of these conditions, and also for Special Needs co-ordinators and Inclusion Manager... Both highly recommended. -- ACHUKA children's blog all dogs have ADHD is part of a picture book series along with all cats have Asperger's syndrome, exploring through images the challenges of living with attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in a gentle and humorous way. The pictures and captions present life situations with a thoughtful understanding and focus, too, on positive ways' to channel an ADHD child's energy and talents. -- British Psychological Society, Debate This sequel to All Cats Have Asperger Syndrome takes the same approach, matching adorable animal photos with the particular traits of children with the disorder. It's an extremely accessible formula, and one that has the potential not only to inform, but to make kids with ADHD feel better about themselves by comparison to such cool critters. -- About.com 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. -- ADHD in Practice This is an absorbing and insightful photo-illustrated read, which takes a really refreshing approach to understanding ADHD. This is an uplifting book for anyone, but especially dog lovers, and those wanting to help children they know with ADHD. -- EYE Early Years Educator It is a book that parents and children can look at together. The photographs are wonderful and suit the dialogue. It is bright and optimistic and implies, with the right help, the child with ADHD will do well. The book also explains the syndrome clearly in simple photographs. The lettering and dialogue are clear and understandable... It is a lovely happy book. -- Hyperactive Childrens Support Group 'Although All Dogs Have ADHD is categorized as juvenile literature, and will certainly appeal to many children, I highly recommend it as a "treatment" for tired parents of children with ADD/ADHD and other special needs -- after all, laughter heals." -- ADDitude: Living Well with Attention Deficit Clearly the author writes from personal experience as she understands the issue so well. This book would give encouragement and reassurance to a child who has been diagnosed with ADHD and the light-hearted insights into the condition would be helpful for parents and siblings as well. -- Home Education Advisory Service Absorbing and delightful, this book, with its vivid and amusing photography, takes a refreshing approach to understanding ADHD. It combines humour with understanding to reflect the joys and challenges of raising a child who is different. -- Northern Rivers magazine All Dogs Have ADHD, like its predecessor, All Cats Have Asperger's Syndrome (Hoopmann, 2006) is designed as a teaching aid to help young children to understand their classmates' behaviour or, if you prefer, behavioural disorders. Bright pictures of jolly exuberant dogs with simply worded one-sentence captions in large print make this an ideal tool for the purpose... All Dogs Have ADHD is a handy teaching tool. -- Journal of Mental Health, Informa Healthcare.

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.

Very lovely and adorable book, read it through laughing and on the verge of tears as soon as I got it. The next day, our four month old Great Dane had gotten a hold of it and the pages were everywhere!! Apparently he didn't like the fact that someone decided to tell humans that all dogs have ADHD!!

This was recommended by my son's doc, and for a kid that is struggling socially, it might be a comfort. In our case I felt like it suggested negative implications of ADHD that wouldn't occur to him otherwise, so I never read it to my son.

This is the sort of simple language and words-and-pictures book normally assumed to be for children, and I would not hesitate to give it to a child. Still, I think it's at least as much for adults, especially those who live with or around a child with ADHD. Or perhaps a child one suspects might have such a "disorder" but has not been diagnosed.<br/><br/>Fact is, the term should be Attention Deficit Hyperactive DIFFERENCE, not disorder. As with Asperger's Syndrome (which all cats have), it's a description of a particular type of kid who may occasionally drive adults crazy, but is also very lovable and interesting. As pointed out on page 58, some very impressive geniuses have been ADHD types as children. Given a chance to grow and develop in their own way, they are a marvelous addition to the mix that is the human race.

This is the second time I have purchased this book because I keep lending out my other copy. If you have any children with ADHD, this book is perfect. We purchased this one and the cat one because they are perfect for explaining this topic to a class. I love how easily they explain ADHD and relate it to something we understand.
