My Review

Hi, It's Me! I Have ADHD is a wonderful children's book that shows kids it's okay to be a bit different. Having a brain that may work too fast or too slow, or feeling happy one moment and then sad the next, is perfectly okay. Not everyone is the same, but being different doesn't mean you have to be an outcast or ashamed. This is a lovely rhyming book that will make kids who may have an ADHD diagnosis that they're just as strong and amazing and wonderful as every other kid. There's nothing wrong with them; they're just different. And being different is not a bad thing. 
The illustrations are fun and colorful, and young readers will enjoy going through the book again and again. 
5 stars!

Author Bio

ADHD goes WAY beyond, "look a squirrel!" My name is Katelyn Mabry and I want to take you on a journey with me! A journey that began when I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was 10 years old. "What is wrong with me?" "I'm not good enough", "I hate myself" and "I'm stupid" where all too common thoughts revolving in my brain! I felt ALONE in how I thought and felt! "Hi It's Me! I have ADHD" was written and created to help children feel understood, connected, and educated on how their minds and emotions work. As a Reading Specialist, it's my mission to educate, empower, and encourage teachers, parents, social workers, and peers to understand and respond in love to those of us internally struggling with symptoms that come with the ADHD diagnosis. As a mother of 4, and having a daughter recently diagnosed with ADHD, it deepens my passion to dig beneath the diagnosis to discover the many gifts and talents that can be tapped into and used to ultimately be successful in life! I may have ADHD, but I choose not to let my "neuro-diverse" brain define me; instead I am determined to redefine it!
