I got the chance to review Dr. Orly’s Surviving Primary School set of books with my 2nd grader in exchange for my honest opinions.
I was pleased to get all 4 books in this series to review from the author. I have an 8 year old who just finished second grade and is going in to third. I also have a 5 1/2 year old who is going to Kindergarten. We’ve already had several struggles with my 8 year old. He is ADHD and Aspergers. Unfortunately he’s alrady had some experience with bullying. He’s not very sure of himself because he struggles with school. I really liked this series of books. For both of us. These books talk about self esteem, peer pressure, kindness and thinking positively. He needs a little helpful nudge in all these areas. My son ate these books up and hopefully will retain the stuff he learned for when he starts school back. I got a lot out of these books too on how to help him. I would recommend this series to every parent of a school aged child. This is information you need and you will be so glad you read these!
You can find this series and her Junior High series and a lot of information and resources on the
