A review... "If you have wanted to explain to your ADHD child what hyperactivity is all about, but didn't know where to begin, Shelley, the Hyperactive Turtle is a good place to start. Deborah Moss combines understandable text with colorful illustrations to describe the woes of Shelley, a young hyperactive turtle who gets in trouble on the school bus, in the classroom and everywhere. His parents finally take him to the doctor who examines him, explains to him that he is hyperactive and prescribes medicine and counseling to help him. Shelley ends up happier and healthier with a better understanding of himself and improved self-esteem.
Shelley, the Hyperactive Turtle seems to be just what parents need to explain ADHD to their preschool or primary grade youngster. Whether parents read the story to their child, or whether it is enjoyed by the child alone, Shelley has a lot to offer." --The CHADDer Box, January 1990About the Author:
Deborah Moss was inspired to write Shelley, the Hyperactive Turtle from personal experience. When her son Ryan was diagnosed with AD/HD at age six in the late 1980’s, a search for a children’s book to explain the disorder to him turned up nothing. After writing the story of Shelley and discovering how much it helped Ryan, she decided to get it published. The author lives in Springdale, Arkansas.
Carol Schwartz is an award-winning illustrator of 37 books for children. She lives in Cincinnati, Ohio with her husband.
