I have assembled a collection of books that focus on issues pertinent to raising gifted children. I encourage you to educate yourselves about gifted children and their needs because you are your child’s greatest advocate. The books marked with ** are good for initial reading material about gifted children. If you send a note with your child, I will be happy to send a book home in a brown envelope. My only request is that you return the book within 2 weeks so that someone else may check it out. Enjoy!!! BOOKS
