All Kinds of Minds: This book was written to help children in the elementary grades understand how they learn, how weaknesses make learning difficult, and how their strengths can be used to improve their learning skills. As the title indicates, minds vary - none is perfect -and everyone needs to appreciate all kinds of minds.
All Kinds of Minds is a mainly fictitious account of 5 appealing and realistic children. Each of them has 1 or more learning disorders. Young readers will easily identify with the experiences of the characters as they appear in a variety of situations: humorous, serious, suspenseful, and sometimes sad.
During the first 7 fictitious chapters, each of the main characters learn about getting help from others, helping themselves, and building on their strengths. The final chapter, which is nonfiction, reviews important concepts and facts that appear in the preceding chapters. It also offers young readers suggestions for overcoming the effects of learning disorders. Some children will be able to read All Kinds of Minds on their own; others may require some help from an adult. Still others may need an adult to read the book to them as they look on.
