Amanda’s Fall

Reviewed by Lydia Dehning (age 6) for Reader Views Kids (3/20)
Amanda’s Fall: A Story for Children About Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) by Kelly Bouldin Darmofal is the story of a little girl named Amanda who is at school in first grade. Amanda likes to play with her friends outside at recess, they like to pretend like they are horses. One day at recess, Amanda rolls down a hill and hits her head on a rock.

I learned a lot about my head from this book. I like the story and how I learned something from it. This will be a good book for anyone to read, especially little kids.

Amanda can’t see the teacher well, she can’t talk to her well, and she starts to shake. Amanda gets taken to the hospital and her parents come, too. At the hospital, Amanda learns that she had a concussion, which is when your head gets hits really hard and your brain moves around. Amanda will have to be careful as she grows up because her concussion might cause problems for her at school. She will also need to be really careful with her head by wearing a helmet while riding her bike and when playing sports like baseball or t-ball. I hope I never get a concussion, and I’ll protect my head by wearing a helmet while I ride my bike and be careful when I play. I learned a lot about my head from this book. I like the story and how I learned something from it. This will be a good book for anyone to read, especially little kids.

A Note from Mom: Lydia didn’t know anything about concussions or hurting your head. From “Amanda’s Fall,” I think she is able to picture what’s going on easier now than if I were to explain it to her. Coming from an author who has experienced a severe head injury, she presented the information appropriately for her target audience. I also like the extra resources in the back of the book, such as symptoms of a concussion and facts about brain injuries. A well-done book
