Special Review of David’s ADHD from a 6th grader…

Lovely 5th grader Review

I received this lovely, mature review for David’s ADHD from a 6th grade budding author… It is wonderful to learn that she is able to relate.



David’s ADHD – by Nell – a 6th grade student 

“I’ve been meaning to share my thoughts with you about your book, David’s ADHD. I recently read it on the kindle, and I really enjoyed it! I love how you make each part rhyme! I also appreciated how you talked about how he was learning to cope with and accept his condition at the end of the story. That is something that I think about as well, having a disease of my own.

I felt that I was really able to connect with David’s feelings in the story. The way you describe his experience really conveys his true feelings. He must have experienced lots of frustration at first, as I did as well, but sometimes these hard things make us better people. In the end, I think that David learned to better understand himself as a learner, and just as a person, after going through those obstacles in the beginning.

Thank you so much for sharing your book with me! I really enjoyed reading it.


I hope this book will help other kids and their parents, caregivers and teachers!  Please share…

My 80th Birthday Poem:

Valentine’s Day 2020

Today I get to say I am
An official octogenarian.
I also am a Valentine
And Aquarius is also mine.

I start my day with happy heart,
Knowing that I’ll get to start
Another journey every day…
And 90’s just ten years away!

Thanks again to all of you!!!

Thanks Kalpart for Adding the Silver Medal on David’s ADHD…there are also two of them!!

Thanks to my awesome illustrator of all of my books, KJ of Kalpart, for adding the Feathered Quill Silver Medal to the cover of David’s ADHD... Actually the book received two of them – one for children’s early reader and one for poetry, – as well as receiving an earlier Pinnacle award –  but one sends the message without crowding the awesome cover!!!

ADHD Affects Home Schooled Children Also

It’s interesting to me to discover how many children seem to be borderline ADHD or actually affected by it… One mother who home-schools her children wrote to me about her son..

“So…here’s something my husband and I have talked about together but not with others…we think there’s a possibility that our son may have a touch of ADHD, it’s showing up more as he gets older; he’s not able to sit and concentrate on his schoolwork so where before he was very far ahead, he’s falling behind as a 15 minute lesson could take him an hour or more to complete, and he’s easily distracted (and an expert in distracting others in order not to do what he’s supposed to be doing), he gets excessively upset over ‘silly’ things …   I’m sure it would be more noticeable and disruptive if he were at school instead of at home, but it’s still frustrating for all of us.  He always has such good intentions…  I think it might be nice for the children to learn more about ADHD … so that they can better understand that not everyone’s brain works the same, which of course makes the world a more interesting place…”

I hope this book will help many families cope with ADHD and benefit from reading the book and sharing it with their children.
