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