Fonseca, C. (2011). 101 success secrets for gifted kids: The ultimate handbook. Woodway, TX: Prufrock Press.
Reviewed By: Allison Lupton
Reference Type: Handbook
Reading Level: 5th- 8th
Call Number: 155.45
Cost: $12.76
Description: This handbook is a great resource for any student labled “gifted” as it offers information in a way that is easy to read and understand. It also offers advice and tips for students that are always pushing themselves to do better.
Relevance/Relationship: Our school collection currently does not have a single resource like this one that is especially for students. Many times I have heard some of the gifted students say that they wish they had a better program outside of their regular courses.
Purpose: The purpose of this handbook would be to provide those students with something they can relate to, and something that continues to motivate them.
Validity: This book has received positive reviews from School Library Journal and was written by Fonseca, who focuses on writing fiction and nonfiction titles for late adolescence.
Format: Print
Arrangement/Presentation: Dialogue bubbles and text boxes help the visuals. One source noted there was no index, but that it does have web and print resources.
Diversity: Often times, the gifted students at our school are overlooked in attempts to bring the lower students up to speed. This book would be a great resource for those students wanting to challenge themselves.
