This book is great for children who don't always pay attention. I have a daughter who is very smart and does not have any ADD problems or anything like that (I know, because I do have ADD). But sometimes, because she does so well in school she doesn't always pay attention and ends up doing the wrong thing. When she is paying attention, she never has any problems. Anyway this book is not intended for kids with ADD or any problems such as these. I don't think the book should be criticized when it comes to children with ADD. This book was not intended for those children, just children that sometimes don't pay attention.
