According to The National Institute of Mental Health, ADHD is the most common childhood brain disorder in our society today. There are resources available to adults/parents/teachers/health care professionals who are managing this condition, however there are few children’s books on this topic that speak directly to the kid’s themselves.

Smart, Skillful and Successful! A Kid’s Guide To Understanding ADHD is a 937-word (Non-Fiction) Easy Reader book with illustrations that outlines the basic definition, symptoms and possible coping strategies for ADHD in children (approx ages 5-8). 

Head In The Clouds is a Transition Chapter Book about Tori Carr, an eight-year old girl who is being diagnosed for ADHD. Each chapter outlines a step in the assessment process that she has to take; from symptoms through to treatment plan. Tori’s journey offers kids of similar age (ages 7-9) who have ADHD, possible coping strategies for their condition throughout the book. 

Bouncing Off The Walls is a Transition Chapter Book about Luke Zullo, an eight year-old boy who is being diagnosed for ADHD. Bouncing Off The Walls follows a similar story line as Head In The Clouds and outlines the ADHD assessment process for kids of similar ages.

ADHD sounds complicated, but it's really quite simple to understand once you learn what all the letters mean. Kids with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder are usually distractible, impulsive, restless and disorganized...Thank goodness! That's what also gives them the potential to be curious, creative, energetic and spontaneous! ADHD isn't so bad, once you learn ways to balance and deal with all of these special and unique qualities! Just because you have ADHD, doesn't mean you can't be smart, skillful and successful too! "a wonderful book for children. Meets a big need." Edward Hallowell, M.D.
