Get Ready for Jetty!:
For individuals in the U.S. & U.S. territories
Meet Jetty. She is just starting fourth grade. Jetty likes: karate, cartwheels, reading, and cookie dough ice cream. Jetty dislikes: girlie girls, anything pink, and writing in complete sentences!
Jetty writes about these things as well as her recent ADHD diagnosis in her journal. Although starting fourth grade with ADHD is tough — with new rules, more schoolwork, and new classmates — Jetty is able to see the bright side as she works with her parents, teacher, and doctor to find a happy medium where she can feel like herself!

She has written two other books published by Magination Press: Cory Stories: A Kid's Book About Living With ADHD and Annie's Plan: Taking Charge of Schoolwork and Homework.

Get Ready for Jetty is also an excellent book to read in class to raise awareness of different types of learners and make other children aware of the various challenges that other students may have. Understanding and relating to Jetty’s perspective can make our children more empathetic and open minded. As parents and educators, I think we can raise more open minded and accepting children by being non-judgmental and educating them about all different learning differences.
