A WALK IN THE RAIN WITH A BRAIN

Each brain finds its own special way — that’s the message in this delightful, colorful story by America’s foremost expert on learning and childhood development. Edward Hallowell, M.D., is a noted psychiatrist and teacher and a leading authority on attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder. At many of his lectures worldwide he has read a story he wrote for children about how each person’s brain is unique — and it has resonated among the thousands of parents, teachers, and others who have heard it. A Walk in the Rain with a Brain is the illustrated version of that story. In it, a little girl named Lucy is making her way down a rainy sidewalk when she spies, of all things, a brain — Manfred, called Fred — sitting forlornly in a puddle. The courtly cerebrum asks Lucy for help getting home, and as they walk along she worries that she’s not smart enough. “Everyone’s smart!” explains Fred. “You just need to find out at what!” Fred reassures her that each child learns and thinks differently — and that every child has special talents. Charming illustrations and a funny, whimsical story teach children to play and learn in order to find the strengths they have — and a discussion guide at the end gives parents and educators the background support they need in order to help children understand and discover the sparkling individuality of their minds.
