Does your child have ADHD (Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)?
Meet David, one of award-winning author Sherrill S. Cannon’s “Classroom of Kids,” who manages his ADHD with the help of classmates.
David discovers ways to cope with his hyperactive brain while learning how to calm and soothe his ADHD. Solutions include setting daily schedules and following simple rules that regulate behavior. His teachers and therapists encourage using the computer for academic advancement, and to establish a pattern for study as well as for occasional recreation. David not only learns self-control and communication skills but is able to fit into the classroom and make friends.
Once again social values are emphasized in the author’s latest illustrated children’s story, and classroom friends from previous books are featured. In fact, David has been part of the class for a long time!
“David’s ADHD is a timely topic for parents and children. A story in rhyme that demystifies ADHD. It explains a youngster’s behavior in terms of his inattentiveness and impulsivity and how it impacts those around him. A sensitive way of creating understanding for children with ADHD and their families.” – Dr. Valerie Allen, licensed school psychologist

Christine Cazes5.0 out of 5 stars Gift of Rhyme Demystifies ADHDReviewed in the United States on February 18, 2020Verified PurchaseSherrill’s gift of rhyme clearly describes the sensitive topic of a child’s diagnosis of ADHD. Turn each page beautifully illustrated by Kalpart, and learn a parent’s frustration and a child’s inability to focus. David quickly learns that there is a way to keep organized, make more friends, and get better grades. As a Reading and Writing Specialist, I was so pleased to share this book with my colleagues in school. Today’s classrooms include many students who lack the ability to focus which interrupts their learning. Some are diagnosed with ADHD. Sherrill’s book gives good advice to parents, teachers, and children. I gave a copy of Sherrill’s book to the parent of one of my students because she worried so much about her son. She read the book and today her son is learning to calm and soothe his ADHD. I highly recommend this book that demystifies ADHD for parents, children, and teachers.
