Book Review/Giveaway: I’m Twirrely! The Nut Family Series. Ends July 19th

I'm Twirrely

I’m Twirrely! The Nut Family Series by Brenda Lochinger, illustrated by Jeffrey Duckworth

About the Book: I’m Twirrely! is the second book in The Nut Family series. It’s about a sweet sassy little squirrel that just wants to dance and be with her friends and family. Twirrely takes you through her day and shows you why her name suits her so well.


My Review: The author introduces us to another member of the Nut family, Twirrely. She loves to dance and twirl all season whether it’s cold or hot. She likes to be happy and she likes things to be done right. She loves attention and when she is bored she bothers her brothers. In class you will find her chatting with her friend Rosie or twirling instead of paying attention to Mr. Maple her class teacher. When her parents ask her to take a break she just stomps and get angry.

Looks like Twirrely finds it hard to be still. She is so busy hopping, spinning or twirling without much time for rest. But what I love about her is that she finds time to help her mother with her chores. This book is about ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and most parents with children who suffer from ADHD can relate. This book is a great book to share with children that have ADHD. It will help them understand their situation better.

The author is donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book to organizations specializing in the treatment and counseling for AD/HD.

I highly recommend this book.

  7. I think this sounds like a great way to explain ADHD to kids – whether they have it or not. Kids can be cruel when someone is “different” but if they could understand whats happening or why it would help all kids fit in together.

  13. It is rare to find a book about ADHD but this one sounds like a nice read for kids that deal with it. I think it would even help parents that have children who deal with ADHD.
