Review:

I highly recommend this book. - Gifted Education Examiner, Dick Kantenberger

An essential guide chock full of relevant, timely information and resources. - Deborah Mersino for Ingeniosus

Bright, Talented, & Black is good resource book for parents of gifted and talented students... The author also does a good job of preparing parents to be advocates for their children's education. - Reviewer on GoodReads

This is really a terrific book... It's well researched, thorough, covers a wide range of topics, and offers practical suggestions as well as advice on many aspects of giftedness. Joy Davis has obviously done her homework and knows her subject intimately. - Anancy Magazine via Corin Goodwin, founder of Gifted Homeschoolers Forum
