Today I’m speaking with Gloria and Peter van Donge about their series of picture books written especially for gifted kids.

In the episode you’ll hear:

  • Gifted kids having very specific challenges that Gloria’s book address:
    • Loving to learn, being creative thinkers, emotional sensitivity
    • Finding it hard to fit in
    • Perfectionism, camouflaging behaviours
  • The books are for parents, grandparents and teachers and come with resources to help you use them that are linked to the Australian curriculum & early years framework
  • The books have been published in many countries and by councillors and psychologists

Hit play and let’s get started!
