Hey, That Kid Got Issues. Maybe It’s ADHD

This book intended for children ages 6 to 10 is about a family’s experience with ADHD. The book helps children and their parents understand why some children cannot sit still, talk too much, have difficulty following directions and paying attention. About the story: As a single parent, Earnest loved his son Justin and took great care of him at home. Yet, Justin started to get into trouble at school. Justin’s behavior was of concern. His grades also fell behind. His teachers did not know what to do to help him, and his Dad started to be very worried. Once his Dad learned about ADHD, he took the time to learn special parenting techniques that work well for children with ADHD. He also got therapeutic help for Justin. Things improved noticeably for Justin and his Dad. Includes a “Parent’s Corner” section, with many great ADHD resources and further reading for parents. Written by Earnest Williams Jr. and beautifully illustrated by Steve Howard. This is a cool book!

Moon NEW book coverIn My Corner On the Moon

This book is intended for children and adolescents who have experienced some form of trauma. Narrated by 12-year-old Abigail, the book is written in a straightforward but gentle style and has a strong psycho-educational component. The idea is to normalize the response that many children have to overwhelming events in their lives. Through Abigail’s story, trauma is put into simple terms that kids can understand and it’s done without delving into details of her own or any specific trauma, but focusing instead on responses to trauma and the healing process that follows. Interactive questions at the end of each page encourage discussion among children and the trusted adults in their lives. This book was wonderfully illustrated in colors by Dale Hormuth, exclusively for PDAN.
