When Gifted Kids Don't Have All The Answers
Jim Delisle, Ph. D. and Judy Galbraith, M.A. (ISBN 1575421070)

Gifted children face social and emotional issues unique to them.  Jim Delisle and Judy Galbraith designed When Gifted Kids Don’t Have All the Answers as a handbook for gifted educators to help address these issues.  The book includes exercises for introspection, research into giftedness, curriculum ideas, and insights from gifted educators and gifted kids.  This is not, however, a book for the uninitiated.  It goes on the assumption that it’s readers don’t need “convincing” and that they already have some background in gifted education. 

Although as a parent, I was not the target audience of this book, I still found the information useful and inspiring.  The information was well organized and supported by research.  I found it easy to read.  My most memorable impression of the book is how sensitive and insightful it is.  I kept finding myself thinking, “I wish I had a teacher like that when I was a kid.”  - DP
