Gifted Kid Zone

Giftedness is 24/7.  It cannot be turned off.  It can’t happen only between 9am-11am on Tuesdays.  What if you were gifted and there was nobody like you?  Would you want to stand out like a bright star against a velvety night sky? Or would you choose to hide by camouflaging your abilities?

This series of books about a family of five gifted cheetah cubs is designed to provide a few snapshots of the world of the gifted and talented child.

?While written and illustrated on a child’s level, they also help adults become aware of some of the issues a gifted child could face.

  • What if they prized their originality?
  • What if they knew that this was normal for them?
  • How wonderful if their giftedness were acknowledged when they were small!
