As a writer, my A to Z challenge is going to be about books, characters, TV shows and movies that have impacted me somehow. Enjoy! Be sure to check out Lee’s blog to find more bloggers taking on this challenge!
Such an incredible character! I’ve been a teacher for a long time. I’ve never had a class without at least 1 student with ADHD. In fact, there are usually 3 or 4 kids with this condition. Society has a mostly negative attitude towards people who have ADHD. I try to help kids realize there are lots of positive aspects – creativity, a fluid brain, an ability to make quick and accurate connections between seemingly disparate items. Joey Pigza showcases all of this – all sides of the reality. And to boot, the kid has a heart the size of Jupiter. It's nice for kids to read about such a positive character.
Do you know of any other characters who have ADHD? Or characters who aren't always what we expect?
