BeschreibungThe newly revised and updated edition of this perennial favorite children's book about a turtle with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD). A new cover, some new illustrations and an updated storyline help to assure the book's continued popularity Shelley's no slow turtle; no matter how hard he tries he can?t sit still. He tries to be good, but gets into trouble for being disruptive at school or breaking things at home. Shelley begins to stay in his shell most of the time, feeling bad about himself. His mother takes him to the doctor to find out if something's wrong. In the new edition, the doctor watches Shelley do puzzles and play with blocks and he asks Shelley's mom lots of questions about her son's behavior at home and school, even how well he sleeps and eats. This information helps the doctor diagnose Shelley's ADHD. Shelley begins to take medicine and talks to a therapist about what makes him feel sad or angry. He feels calmer and happier, finds more friends, and at last knows that everyone doesn?t think he's a bad little turtle. The second edition continues to be a reassuring story for young kids who?ve been diagnosed with AD/HD and a useful book to share at school.
