“I know a girl I met at school, and she does not sit still.
I sometimes really wonder if she can or ever will!
She’s always, always moving, going from here to there.
At first she’s at the bookshelf, and then she’s by her chair,
But then she’s at the window, though not for very long!
And all the while she’s doing this, she hums a happy song.
But when our teacher says to her, ‘I need you to sit down,’
I can tell she’s really sad, for she begins to frown,
Because it is so hard for her to sit and pay attention,
Plus having to remember when the teacher gives direction.”


Understanding Reed follows six-year-old Reed, a little girl with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) whose seemingly uncontrollable behavior puzzles and frustrates her classmates and friends. With fun rhymes and colorful illustrations, Understanding Reed provides an easy and uplifting way to help children understand the concept of inclusion and why another child may act so differently. Discussion questions included at the end of the book encourage children to share their thoughts and feelings
