Ages 9-12, 112 pages.

This book talks to young girls about ADD/ADHD and how it affects them differently than it does boys. The reader is given different techniques for helping to control the symptoms of ADD. It is not a story book. Rather it is a gathering of topics that the child can read in order, or in the order of their choosing.

This is a great source of inspiration. I never thought of it, but of course children should read about ADHD too! We normally only hear (read) about attention deficit disorder seen from adults perspective. Thumbs up!
