We all know and love blogging buddy Christine Fonseca. Her first book, Emotional Intensity in Gifted Students: Helping Kids Cope with Explosive Feelings has been a huge success. I own it and love it!

Now, she's done it again with her latest book, 101 Success Secrets for Gifted Kids. I can't tell you how much both books have helped me deal with my daughter this year--and she's only six!

If you teach, if you parent, if you write about gifted kids . . . you need this book!!  Christine has made life with my daughter SO MUCH better. For the first time, I'm beginning to understand her emotionalism and intensity, her drive to outperform her 3rd grade brother, and her quick-flaring frustration. And I am so thankful!!

I'll be getting this book for my kids to read during the summer. None of them are gifted, but Christine said the advice works for all kids. :)

Christine Fonseca said...

I agree! Reading 101 Success Secrets... was quite the experience. I was taken aback at the insights Christine gave, but also by the quotes from children and parents.

Before the end of the workbook, I could feel a change growing inside me and that has indeed carried over into my writing.

Okay, so Isabella's only 3 months old. Is it too early to say she's gifted? Lol. You know, I didn't realize there were such great books out there on this topic--it's good to know. Thanks!
