9780060007317: A Walk in the Rain with a Brain

Each brain finds its own special way -- that's the message in this delightful, colorful story by America's foremost expert on learning and childhood development.

Edward Hallowell, M.D., is a noted psychiatrist and teacher and a leading authority on attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder. At many of his lectures worldwide he has read a story he wrote for children about how each person's brain is unique -- and it has resonated among the thousands of parents, teachers, and others who have heard it.

A Walk in the Rain with a Brain is the illustrated version of that story. In it, a little girl named Lucy is making her way down a rainy sidewalk when she spies, of all things, a brain -- Manfred, called Fred -- sitting forlornly in a puddle. The courtly cerebrum asks Lucy for help getting home, and as they walk along she worries that she's not smart enough. "Everyone's smart!" explains Fred. "You just need to find out at what!" Fred reassures her that each child learns and thinks differently -- and that every child has special talents.

Charming illustrations and a funny, whimsical story teach children to play and learn in order to find the strengths they have -- and a discussion guide at the end gives parents and educators the background support they need in order to help children understand and discover the sparkling individuality of their minds.

About the Author:

Edward M. Hallowell, M.D., is a child and adult psychiatrist, the director of the Hallowell Center for Cognitive and Emotional Health in Concord, Massachusetts, and a senior lecturer at Harvard Medical School. He is the coauthor of the national bestseller on attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, Driven to Distraction, and the author of a number of other important works, including The Childhood Roots of Adult Happiness, Connect, Answers to Distraction, and When You Worry About the Child You Love, which was named best book of the year on child development by Child magazine. A graduate of Harvard and Tulane University School of Medicine, he lives in Arlington, Massachusetts, with his wife and three children.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3 - The message, that "no brain is the best,/ Each brain finds its own special way," is a worthy one, but the didactic text doesn't work and the plot strains belief. A little girl, out for a walk in the rain, meets a brain named Fred who is looking for his head, and asks him to make her smart. He tells her that "smart" is only a word that a brain named Complain came up with so "some brains can rule all the rest." Everyone, he insists, has a special talent that can be cultivated, and no one is better than anyone else. Having made his point, Fred then "dip[s] out of sight" into a head that just conveniently appears. The rhyming text doesn't always scan: "Fred then smiled up at me,/ And said, 'Thank you/ For bringing me home, Lucy.'" The illustrations, all large cartoon spreads, afford close-ups of the girl and Fred eye to eye, and when Complain is told "No brain is the best!/ You are just an old pest!" his inflamed face is depicted over a spread, pupils crossed in their yellow orbs, huge teeth flashing in a grimace. Shadow illustrations of a dog chasing or fighting with a cat appear throughout. A lengthy discussion guide is provided for parents and teachers, and the information about how to nurture the brain with activity, nutrition, and exercise is fine. However, most youngsters' brains will not be engaged for long with this tale. - Marianne Saccardi, Norwalk Community College, CT
