Step into the Shoes of Alex and Uncover the World of a Child with ADHD

"Hi, It's Me! I have ADHD!" allows you to accompany Alex as she explores what her world is like with ADHD. 

I read this to one of my groups last week and it was probably one of the best groups I’ve had with them. Why? Because they could relate. At various times in the story, at least one student would say...Oh, that happens to me! At the end, I even had a student say...My mom needs to read this book so she can have some tips. - Dawn Vent


A Great Guide for Children Trying to Understand Their ADHD

From thinking fast, to thinking slow, from feeling high, to feeling low; this busy child wishes adults could see inside her head.
Based on the author's personal experience with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, "Hi, It's Me" shares the thoughts, feelings, emotions, and experiences of a child dealing with the many challenges of ADHD.
Offering insight into the world of ADHD and presenting a list of tips and printable coloring/journal pages; this rhyming picture book helps children struggling with ADHD feel empowered. It lets kids know that the diagnosis does NOT define them and that there are so many gifts beneath the diagnosis. It communicates that they can find peace knowing they're not alone in how they think and feel.

One thing Mabry does well in her book is presenting the struggles and positive aspects of ADHD. No one can read the description of ADHD in this book and say it is a positive or negative experience. It just is. That is in line with my thinking. ADHD is neither a gift nor a curse. Mabry does an excellent job of bringing that balanced perspective to her book.

In "Hi, It's Me! I have ADHD!" author Katelyn Mabry has created an enchanting world that children and parents can explore together. Mabry recalls as a child feeling things like: "What is wrong with me?" "I'm not good enough", "I hate myself" and "I'm stupid!” She felt ALONE and created this book to help children feel understood, connected, and educated on how their minds and emotions work. As a Reading Specialist, it's her mission to educate, empower, and encourage teachers, parents, social workers, and peers to understand and respond in love to those of us internally struggling with symptoms that come with the ADHD diagnosis. 

"Hi, It's Me! I have ADHD!" transcends the boundaries of a typical children's book; it becomes a transformative journey of self-discovery, compassion, and acceptance. Through its pages, children learn to embrace their strengths and differences, while adults learn to respond with love and understanding, fostering an inclusive and supportive environment for every child. Mabry's book stands as a testament to the power of literature in nurturing emotional intelligence, empathy, and resilience in both children and adults alike. As the story unfolds, readers embark on a profound exploration of the human experience, leaving an indelible mark on their hearts and minds.
