For children with ADHD, reading this book is a chance to get to kw themselves (and their diagsis) much better! Toby, the narrator, relates his experiences coping with life as an ADHD child in an authentic child's voice that is sometimes funny, sometimes exasperated, sometimes proud, illustrating the range of emotions that kids with ADHD/ADD feel. The book provides information in a frank, upbeat, conversational manner and offers thought-provoking questions designed to help readers recognise how ADHD/ADD affects them and then come up with better ideas for handling difficult situations in their own lives. From facts about an ADHD diagsis to whether to tell friends and teachers, and from understanding both the good and bad aspects of ADHD to what can help with the disorder, there's plenty of solid information, emotional support, and tips for children and teens.
Tobias Stumpf enjoys playing drums and guitar, golfing, snowboarding, and being a normal kid with ADHD. He is on a mission to share that it's OK to have ADHD. Dawn Schaefer Stumpf, Tobias's mother, is an elementary educator with over twenty years' experience working with children.
