Books for Kids with ADHD
Are you having trouble finding books explaining ADHD to a child?
If you think being a parent to children with ADHD is tough, try being the child. It’s hard and no one understands which makes it extremely frustrating.
As a parent, it’s our job to teach them to be self-sufficient adults, to embrace their strengths and build on them. How do we do that when we barely understand the struggles they are going through?
Try these easy to read books below. Help your child understand the diagnosis of ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), learning disabilities and the struggles to overcome in school and beyond.
If your kids are like my ADHD son, getting him to read was a battle. Many of these books (not all – please check) are available with an Audible book option and/or Kindle Unlimited option.
For those discouraged readers with significant ADHD symptoms and/or a learning disability, I suggest a subscription to Amazon Audible or any Audible book program. Try listening to books with your children on the way to school each morning and then you can discuss the books together.
If you can create a dialogue with your superhero to open the communication door, which in turn will lead to a stronger understanding and better relationship.
This list is only a small sample of available great books. Amazon has so many, it was difficult to narrow it down.
The list is divided into three sections:
- Explaining ADHD to a child books
- Behavior and Social Skills

Since I research and share information about CBD and other natural alternatives to ADHD pharmaceuticals, my content may contain affiliate links for products I love and use.
If you take action (at no costs to you) by clicking on these links, I will earn some coffee money, which I’ll probably donate to animal shelters and rescues like The Beagle Freedom Project.
But if there is any left over after coffee and saving abused beagles and other animals, I’ll use to support this web page and continue to create awesome tools and posts to help you make educated and informed decisions about trusted and reputable products.
