Books for Children about ADHD & LD

I came across this list and wanted to share it. My 9 year old ADHD/LD son has actually read some of the books (indicated with an *). It encouraged him to learn that there are plenty of other kids just like him in the world. They helped explain his condition in kid-friendly terms as well. I hope they may be of help to your child too.
