By Sarah Cheyette, M.D.
If you are looking for the best book to introduce your young child to ADHD, look no further. In my opinion, ADHD & Me is it.
Sarah Cheyette, a pediatric neurologist who really knows her stuff, captivatingly writes in words any child can understand. The enchantingly illustrated drawings of Daniel Perlmutter remind me of Antoine de Saint-Exupery and The Little Prince. This lovely little book tells your child all he or she needs to know about ADHD in such a way that she or he will only feel good about having it.
Dr. Cheyette describes the elements of ADHD in a straightforward way that steers clear of any hint of gloom and doom. Instead, Cheyette provides practical ways of dealing with the issues that come up in life with ADHD. She lets the child—and parent—know that not only can the issues be dealt with, the management of this trait can turn life toward joy and success.
“A tincture of love suffuses both the prose and the illustrations in this book. You can feel it on every page, as it casts its special spell. Never sappy, always factual, this beguiling little volume is a model of its kind, a memorable and compelling read for any child who wants to understand ADHD.” – Edward Hallowell, M.D.
