Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Alison Johansen
With Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder on the rise, many children (and their parents) are struggling to manage emotions that can be intense, confusing, and upsetting. This easy-to-read handbook provides parents, caregivers, teachers, and school counselors with practical and engaging ways to navigate the challenging feelings that children experience with AD/HD. In the first chapter, clinical psychologists Glasser and Nadeau walk through twenty of the most common feelings and provide relatable examples, sometimes with a blank space for children to draw these feelings. For example, readers are invited to draw a picture of the last time they felt proud. Beyl illustrates these feelings with fun cartoons that gently encourage children to recognize, feel and explore their emotions. Chapter two shows kids how to stay in their “feel good zone” with the acronym CHEERS: CHill out, Exercise, Eat healthy protein, Routines, and Sleep. Chapter three teaches kids about staying out of their “upset zone” by being able to recognize the warning signs. Chapters four and five talk about a “feelings toolbox” of specific ways they can feel good and handle feelings that are upsetting. Word searches, a maze, a secret message, actions plans, and a progress chart give children tangible ways to think about what they’ve learned. Parents will welcome suggestions for providing positive rewards to their children, along with other tips for fostering invaluable skills as they continue their journey with AD/HD. There is an index of helpful websites, meditation resources (CDs and books), and additional books for both parents and kids. Reviewer: Alison Johansen; Ages 6 to adult.

Gr 3–6—This book is directed at children, but parents who want to help their youngsters with AD/HD build up self-esteem while learning to keep their temper might want to read it with them. The accessible text opens with a discussion of various feelings, including happy, bored, angry, calm, ashamed, followed by suggestions for "staying in your feel good zone," "feel good tools for specific upset feelings," and more. Illustrations are sprinkled throughout, and there are a few charts with fill-in blanks. Back matter has tips and resources for parents; the further reading for kids lists mostly other titles from the publisher of this book. Suitable for self-help and parenting collections.—Esther Keller, I.S. 278, Brooklyn, NY
