Understanding My Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
By Kara T. Tamanini
"This self published children's picture book was created by a professional Christian mental health counselor to help children with ADHD understand that ADHD may lead to trouble in school and home. An older man shares his childhood story of struggling with ADHD and his success after getting help. Although overly wordy for its target audience in home or at school, it would be a good addition for professionals to place in their waiting rooms for children and parents to read." (Allison Martin)
