—The Association for the Gifted (TAG)
“If you are a gifted kid; a gifted kid’s mom or dad, teacher or counselor; or if you even speak with a gifted kid occasionally—do yourself a big favor and read this book.”—Gifted Education Communicator
“Being excluded from peers can be confusing, even for the brightest young minds. Now in a revised, updated, and expanded third edition, The Gifted Kids’ Survival Guide: For Ages 10 & Under is a guide for young gifted and talented children who may not think their talents are a gift. With much advice for young people about understanding their gifts and learning that being brainy is not a detriment, The Gifted Kids’ Survival Guide is the perfect gift for the under-confident and over-skilled young reader.”—The Midwest Book Review, Reviewer’s Choice
“[A] well-organized, kid-friendly handbook that parents, educators, and anyone who works with children will also value.” —Youth Today
“While none of the advice or explanations are surprising for anyone who has been around gifted kids, the book has great value for the kids themselves.”—Amy S. Hansen, Children’s Literature
“This updated classic is sorely needed to help gifted kids survive and thrive. Its visually appealing format invites kids and parents to read and discuss the book together to promote beneficial communication and understanding of being gifted in a NCLB world. Rather than propose didactic answers, the thoughtful approach encourages kids to ponder their capabilities and concerns and develop personal responses.” —Bertie Kingore, Ph.D., international gifted education consultant and author
“I recommend this book with enthusiasm to gifted kids across the country.” —Sally M. Reis, Ph.D., Board of Trustees Distinguished Professor Teaching Fellow, Department of Educational Psychology, University of Connecticut
“This guide offers timeless content on all things gifted. The information and resources are current and helpful, and the artwork and graphics complement the text in a warm, inviting style. Gifted kids will just LOVE this book—and they shall learn from it, too.”—Jim Delisle, Distinguished Professor of Education (retired), Kent State University, and author of 14 books, including Smart Talk and More Than a Test Score

The book has excellent tips and questions for the child to think about and is a great starter for conversations between the parent and child. As an educator, I think this book would be a great classroom reader to use in a small group with talented/bright/gifted kids so that they can have the conversations with each other
The book also talks about how kids can manage the teasing from others, the lack of understanding from teachers and adults, and in general their own self worth.
