I actually had trouble breathing when I read this book! It was as if someone had followed my son around and wrote a book just for him. What a self-esteem booster for the kid with a "learning difference" to know that they are not alone! I plan on getting extra copies for every special teacher I know as well as my son's doctor. I wish it were in the hands of every elementary teacher in the nation, as well as the hands of every special learner!

Unlike so many other kids' books on the subject, this one doesn't pretend that ADHD is cute or painless. It heals because it faces up to the pain and rejection, while offering honest solutions. Moreover, it assures the child that ADD has a uniquely positive side. I bought a boxful for my clients.

This book helps children understand LD as a handicap that they can do something about. It is written in a way that helps you explain what their problems are and what they can do about them. It's great.

Format: Hardcover
Awsome book!!! Not only is it a great motivation book for students with learning disabilties but it is also a great book to teach adults and children about Learning disabilities. I myself grew up with a learning disability now persuing a carrer to be a teacher. Many people have the wrong idea about LD and I feel this book says it all. People think that LD students lack Knowledge. LD Students dont Lack Knowlage as pointed out in the book as well but Ld students lack SKILL!!!!!! Skill can be acquired and then knowledge can be learned. Or you can develop other skills to gain the knowledge needed as a supplement for the skill missing. LD Students can do anything they put their minds to!!!! Don't give up was always my motto and to ingnore nunsence people as well with negitive stigmas or stero types for LD People. The ingnorance that people have about LD is what makes LD people feel so insecure because society lacks information about LD. I tend to use this book to teach all my classes about LD. This book is great for all student Ld or not. Society needs to be informed to prevent society from provoking negitivity or wrong statistics on to LD students. People with LD dont succeed when they believe in all that society has provoked on to us. I belive in ingoring those that dont know and keep going. I am smart!!! I can do it!!!! and this book brings that out in people just like me!!!!! AWSOME BOOK!!!!

Format: Paperback
I notice that some reviews refer to ADD and some refer to LD. The author writes of learning differences which could apply to children with different problems. I really like the way she writes. It is warm and from the heart. It helps put labels aside and look at the child and what the child can do. Another book that does that is Whoa Wiggle-worm which addresses name calling (by adults and children), helping others, understanding and self-conrol.

I have my own "don't give up kid", and he loves to pull this book out sometimes at night and we read it AGAIN ! Since he is the one that requests to read it, I know that it must be hitting home for him and helping him to feel good about himself. I have purchased a copy for the teacher's library at our school. A must have for a LD child's home library.
