Understanding my ADHD, is written as an introduction for children who are being evaluated for ADHD or who have recently been diagnosed with ADHD. The book is a story about a child named Tommy, who is struggling in school and who always seems to be in trouble. The author's story explains the symptoms of ADHD in kid-friendly language and offers hope and encouragement to a child that with work things can get better.
"Young children always have questions, but those questions may not always be easy to answer. In her new kid-friendly book, Understanding My Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Kara Tamanini has made that process much simpler. In this sensitive book, easily understood by even preschoolers, Mr. Timmons, a kindly shop owner, shares his childhood experiences with Tommy, a boy coming to grips with his own ADHD behaviors. Wonderful on its own, this first book in Ms. Tamanini's Kids Awareness Series leaves me wanting more."
