3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Linda Harrison on May 7 2011
Format: Paperback
As a mom of a child who can easily become sensory overloaded, I really enjoyed reading this book to my son. It has practical tips that he has been more eager to try as a result of reading the book. He told me, "Izzy does that!"

As an occupational therapist, I also loved the book, and found it to be an accurate representation of the sensory issues children experience, and current approaches to dealing with them.

A highly recommended and educational book for parents and children to share June 17 2009
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Why Does Izzy Cover Her Ears? Dealing with Sensory Overload is the picturebook story of Izzy, an intelligent young girl just starting the first grade. Izzy has sensory processing disorder, which makes her over-responsive to environmental stimuli, including sounds, accidental bumps from other kids, and visual distractions. Her reflexive tendencies to cry, lash out, or cover her ears have caused other kids to accuse her of being mean, or deride her as a "crybaby". But with help from her parents, her teachers, and an occupational therapist, she is learning how to adjust. She feels calmer and ready to learn, and she's made a lot of friends! The story is told from Izzy's point of view, but does not talk down to the reader. A highly recommended and educational book for parents and children to share, especially if the child has sensory processing disorder or knows relatives or friends with it.

It's All Too Much June 1 2009
By BeatleBangs1964 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
George Harrison's stellar "It's All Too Much" and the inane classic "Make the World Go Away" which I never liked could easily be the soundtracks for this book.

Izzy is a delightfully plausible character who MIGHT have autism. She plainly has sensory issues, one of which is an aversion for loud noises. They are painful to her, so she will cover her ears regardless of her her environment.

She is a wonderful role model for all children, neurotypical and on the spectrum alike. I wish I'd had this book when I was a child. Show me a person on the spectrum who DOESN'T hate loud noises and surprises and I will show you a buzzard who can dance and a screaming eagle who can sing.

Izzy personifies the sensory overload experience perfectly and George Harrison's 1968 lyrics "it's all too much for me to see....it's all too much for me to take" sum up this story very well.

Overloaded with Awesome Sensory Information to Share with Kids! May 26 2009
By Joanna Keating-Velasco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
From beginning to end, I LOVED this wonderful tool for introducing sensory challenges and solutions to kids at such an important age as early elementary school years. Izzy is a wonderful role model for kids who are challenged by their senses. They can see they are not alone and see how she deals with some of her challenges at school. As important, the book provides a wonderful tool to introduce sensory issues and potential sensory overload to classmates to help them better understand their peers who might be dealing with sensory overload. This book has great potential to bridge a gap between classmates by giving a better understanding of what others might be experiencing with regards to sensory issues.

Kudos to Jennifer Veenendall for delivering to us a wonderfully illustrated and clever story which beautifully tells a story of one child that can be transferred to many, many more.

Shows Sensory Overload in a Child Dec 6 2009

Meghan's World: The Story of One Girl's Triumph over Sensory Processing Disorder

This book does a nice job of showing what a child goes through when they reach the point of sensory overload. It is good for teachers and other children to see what sets off these reactions and what to do when it does happen. I wish it was around when my daughter was younger and dealing with her spd.

Wonderful representation of SPD Aug. 20 2011
By Ninjamom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
One of my kids has SPD, and I had both of his siblings read this book to help them understand what it's like for their brother. I have sent it to school as well for his classmates to read. It explains what SPD can be like, but on a child's level. I've even passed this book around to the adults in my family because it describes SPD in such a quick and simple fashion and saves me from repeating myself over and over and over. It is the most accurate and clearest book of its kind that I've found!
