Understanding Reed | By D. Anello and M. Becker
Looking for a fun and uplifting way to help a child understand why another child acts so differently? Understanding Reed is a story that does just that! Reed is a bright little girl with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Her unbridled enthusiasm, energy, and seemingly uncontrollable behavior puzzles and frustrates her classmates and friends. When the teacher realizes this is a wonderfully teachable moment, she encourages her class to give Reed a special gift, along with understanding, which helps Reed learn to interact successfully in her classroom.
With fun rhymes and colorful illustrations, Understanding Reed provides an easy and uplifting way to help children understand the concept of inclusion. Discussion questions are included at the end of the book to encourage children to share their thoughts and feelings. Donna and Mary hope that this story will help both children and adults remember that although each of us may be different and behave in different ways, each of us is truly wonderfully made!
