Sparky's Excellent Adventures should be a required reading for all educators, parents and grade school children. It touched me emotionally more than any other children's book. It speaks to the pain and to the joy of living with ADD (attention deficit disorder). Sparky addresses the heart, and enlightens the mind, unlike any medical or professional description.

What a wonderful way to share information and to find help for ADD. Children can identify with Sparky. Anyone with ADD should read this story. Also, it is a great book for all teachers to read.

My son is 6 years old and has ADHD. He definitely could relate to Sparky. I agree that this book should be on the required reading list for parents, teachers, children (with or without ADD) and psychologists/therapists/etc. It is an easy read, ever for my 1st grader. He enjoyed the story and could relate to almost everything that happened to Sparky. I heard a lot of "that's like me, mom". Thank you for such a great book!
