Keepsake that Educates!

Book Review/Giveaway: My Warp Speed Mind. Ends March 7th

My Wrap Speed Mind

My Warp Speed Mind written by Donalisa Helsley, illustrated by Kalpart

About the Book: Do you have trouble paying attention and being still? Do you feel like everyone is always mad at you? Drake knows how you feel. With some help he will learn how to control his impulses. A spaceship that can go warp speed is great, but only if you know how to make it slow down too!

My Review: The author has written a great book for children dealing with ADHD, not only for the child but their parents and teachers to understand how to control of their warp speed mind. Drake didn’t understand why he was always in trouble. He didn’t like school because the teachers were always telling him to keep still or to be quiet or put him on time out. He was finding it hard to pay attention in class making clown faces and ends up in the Principal’s office. Drake also got in trouble at home. It was time for his parents to find out what was really wrong with him. Drake was diagnosed with ADHD.

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) has been defined as “A problem of not being able to focus, being overactive, not being able control behavior, or a combination of these. For these problems to be diagnosed as ADHD, they must be out of the normal range for a person’s age and development.”

The author gives some great suggestions for children, parents, and teachers. Fun exercises for calm children down and release those extra energy.

  • Breathing exercises
  • Do the shake and take a deep breath
  • Create a discipline system
  • Make praise specific
  • Create a schedule
  • Remember to be patient and consistent

The Warp Speed Mind story is fun and educational. The illustrations by Kalpart are colorful and bright which helps tell the story.  The best part of this story is Drake realizing that ADHD is not the boss of him. He is the boss of his ADHD. A well written book and I recommend this to parents with children with ADHD.

  1. This book sounds as if it could be instrumental in explaining ADHD to those who suffer from it. I have tried to explain the functioning of the brain to my ADHD suffering son, and to assist him with his breathing when he gets out of control, but I’m not always there. He’s having so much trouble now. If he could read this, and realize that ADHD isn’t his boss, what a difference it could make in his life. This book sounds outstanding.

  2. I love that the book gives children, parents and teachers tools, practical tools, for everyone to understand and use. It seems as if a child that is struggling with ADHD, but is unclear what they themselves are experiencing, would be able to relate to situations in this book and gain clarity of what they are feeling and/or experiencing. I love that. I believe, as a parent myself, it would help me to articulate my thoughts and feelings, as well. From this review, it seems as if this is a great book and very needed. I agree that the best part is when the character, Drake, realizes that he is the boss of ADHD and not the other way around.

  4. I teach several children with ADHD, and it is difficult to help them concentrate. I have learned some ways to help them, but this book seems like a great way to help me learn more as a teacher and will give me some ideas to tell the parents and students themselves. Drake sounds like a relatable character that some of my students would be able to empathize with. It sort of reminds me of Percy Jackson because he has ADHD and dyslexia, making him a relatable character.
