A photo of Gifted Kids Books Series written by Gloria van Donge

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!
