One of a Kind Kid
A Journey with ADHD
by Nancy Anderson

Being a kid with ADHD can be hard. There are so many things in the world to explore! How can anyone sit still for even a minute? The one-of-a-kind kid has trouble with this, but all his energy makes life so much more interesting. He is great at sports and making friends, and he loves helping others. Some people don’t understand why he acts the way he does, but he knows that he’s loved and he’s trying his best. Author Nancy Anderson based One of a Kind Kid on her own experiences raising a child with ADHD, giving the story a moving authenticity.

"Challenging stereotypes, Nancy Anderson’s picture book One of a Kind Kid is about a boy with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder. The boy is an empathetic hero—he’s curious about his surroundings and faces common situations in his daily life. His voice is clear and honest; this transparency extends to his thoughts regarding his ADHD-related behaviors and treatment processes, which include medication and doctor visits. The typography is playful, with some terms appearing in different colors and larger print for emphasis. And the illustrations are vibrant, featuring color-blocking and shadowing techniques. Their settings are imaginative; they complement the vastness of the hero’s interests. One of a Kind Kid is an empathetic picture book about a child’s experience with ADHD." ─Foreword Clarion Reviews ★★★★

Nancy Anderson is the mother of a son who was diagnosed with ADHD at six years old. She advocates for more understanding around ADHD and hopes her book One of a Kind Kid will raise awareness about the disorder and the importance of understanding it. Her goal is to spread a message of awareness and compassion around a condition that affects over a million children and adults in Canada. She currently lives in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, with her husband, Terry.
