Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-Andrews emphasizes that meditation is not a flaky practice, or a particularly religious one, but one that's designed to reduce stress and help individuals manage their lives. Four chapters explain the why and how of meditating. Questionnaires dealing with self-awareness and feeling overwhelmed are inserted into the text. Two drawings-one of a full lotus, the other of a half lotus, are included. Landau defines dyslexia as a "learning difference," not a "learning disability." In four clearly written chapters, she describes the condition and suggests methods for managing it. There is no "cure," nor does one outgrow it. The book offers solid, basic information; there are no illustrations. Trueit explains ADHD well, also addressing the issue of overdiagnosis. Illustrations show the brain and neurotransmitters. Three books that offer solid, easy-to-understand information, without flashy designs.-Linda Beck, Indian Valley Public Library, Telford, PA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
