What a great confidence builder for kids!
Children with ADD are usually compassionate, creative thinkers. They’re keen observers with great senses of humor. But these positives are often overshadowed by the challenges they face. Eagle Eyes focuses on the upsides of ADD.
As the story opens, Ben is discouraged by his inability to concentrate. But he learns to appreciate his “eagle eyes,” a trait common in ADD kids, when he rescues his injured father.
