From the Publisher:

A review... "'His teacher had written to the parents of Zachary Winson on the envelope. Mrs. Ginsberg only wrote letters home if something very good or very bad had happened....' Written at the third-to sixth-grade reading level, this book provides young readers with an inside view of how attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) affects one young boy, his family, peers, and teachers. Zipper, The Kid with ADHD is a delightful story about a fifth grade boy, Zachary Winson (nicknamed Zipper), who is constantly in trouble because of his inappropriate actions and responses to school and home situations. Zachary's teachers are frustrated because he is disruptive in class and does not work to his potential; his parents don't understand why he can't seem to get organized and succeed in school; his peers avoid him because he is obnoxious and immature; and Zachary feels lost, alone, and confused about others' reactions to him. The situations that he finds himself in are very real to many young people with ADHD.

This book provides a realistic picture of a child who is struggling at school and home. Zachary looks like many children with ADHD who can't seem to function like same- age peers despite average to above-average potential. Throughout the book, ADHD is presented as a condition that afflicts some children and adults but can be ameliorated through behavior changes, organizational strategies, and, sometimes, medication. It is important to note that although medication is presented as a possible treatment option,. Zachary begins to experience success at school and home when he starts using organizational methods-medication is not identified as a panacea for ADHD but rather as one option for some people.

This book is a great story for teaching understanding and acceptance of individuals with disabilities. Its easy reading style makes it very accessible for young children or adolescents who have lower reading levels. General and special educators alike should consider putting this book on the reading list." --Intervention in School and Clinic, March 1999
