Life with Gifted Children:

Infinity & Zebra Stripes

By Wendy A. Skinner
Published by Great Potential Press, Inc.
Scottsdale, AZ. 2007.

Double Award-Winner! When her seven-year-old son showed his understanding of the concept of infinity while talking about how zebras all have their own unique patterns of stripes, Wendy Skinner knew that he was going to need something more stimulating than the regular school program—her son’s gifted intellect and advanced talents were going to be a challenge. In this book, Skinner shares her family’s story of struggle and eventual success in working with the school system, trying out various educational options to meet her children’s needs. Enlightening anecdotes of the author’s experiences and discussions of a variety of educational approaches help parents reading this book discover effective strategies for minimizing parent-school conflict. Learn how to build trusting relationships with teachers and administrators, as well as how your voice can influence school decisions that will allow your gifted child to learn and thrive.
