Purchase Zipper: The Kid With ADHD
Every child needs a passion, something that really makes him shine.
In Zipper: the Kid with ADHD, fifth-grader Zach forges a relationship with a retired jazz musician, who fosters his interest in the drums. When he plays, he forgets his ADHD, and focuses on how amazing he sounds. Playing the drums breeds a new confidence in Zach, and — what do you know? — it carries over into his classroom.
