You Know Your Child Might be Gifted When…
By Judy Galbraith
This is a tiny book but is filled with some excellent ideas and insights. It includes some cartoon-type drawings with exaggerated but amusing representations of giftedness. This book is heavy on vague lists of what to look for in children who might be gifted. It contains very few specifics and reads more like a book intended to convince parents that their children are gifted rather than a serious analysis of the extent of their skills. Not a research volume -- more like the kind of book you give to your child's grandparents to help them understand why you are doing some special activities or schooling for your bright youngster. The cover does say beginner's guide -- you shouldn't expect depth.
