About the Book
This book was published in partnership with David Berman Communications.
Elli: A Day in the Life of a Kid with ADHD follows real life 9-year-old Elias (Elli) on his adventures and occasional misunderstandings as a child with ADHD. Author and illustrator Ari H.B. Yates interviewed Elli, combined several of his stories into one, and then worked with Elli to illustrate the journey. Together they hope that other children with learning differences can see they aren’t alone in their challenges, and that it’s possible to approach ADHD in a positive way.
The book also takes a look at the often-complicated relationship between children with ADHD and their caregivers and teachers. (Hint: Adults aren't always right, but they deserve compassion, too.) Elli: A Day in the Life of a Kid with ADHD is a humorous tale with a problem-solving approach that young people and adults alike will enjoy and learn from.
Elli: A Day in the Life of a Kid with ADHD by Ari H.G. Yates is available in paperback ($16.99, 40 pages, ISBN: 9781930583900) and coming soon in accessible EPUB ($16.99, ISBN: 9781930583917) format.
