Raisin’ Brains: Surviving My Smart Family
by: Karen L. J. Isaacson
Read about a gifted, creative, and immensely entertaining family! There’s an imaginative pre-teen daughter who keeps all sorts of living and non-living things under her bed for her mother to discover, a talented teenage son whose single goal in life is to have a rock band, an intellectual daughter who makes pretty designs with the ovals of a bubble sheet during a test instead of answering the questions, and a grandmother who makes tuna fish and jellybean sandwiches for lunch. Aunts and uncles and grandparents, all with their own quirks and quirky ideas, round out the family. Yet they all get along famously! Humor like this helps parents and teachers maintain a badly-needed sense of perspective. Laugh out loud with Karen Isaacson’s delightfully energetic stories on life with an eclectic, endearing, gifted, and creative family. Reading these unbelievable (but true!) stories not only will help you appreciate your own family, but also will give you an informal introduction into the world of gifted children and adults.
