Gifted Kids Speak Out
by James R Delisle Year Published: 1987
Gr 4 Up In his introduction, Delisle writes that he hopes that his book will provide young readers with ``a feeling that you are not alone.'' The concern is vital, especially for the population and the age group that his book targets. De lisle has listened to kids, and the young voices speak out about understandings of giftedness; adult expectations of gift ed kids; parent, sibling, and peer rela tionships; schooling; and future hopes and dreams. The responses are brief, and labeled with the sex, age, and home state of the child. Gifted children will benefit from this book, as will those who guide and mentor them. The car toon-like illustrations represent the sexes and racial groups equally.
