Review by: Heidi Brewer, East Valley Parenting Advice Examiner - July 13, 2011
This book, full of wonderful references, puts knowledge into the hands of parents. It urges parents to positively advocate for their child. It opens the door to many of the possiblities that are out there in the realm of alterenative education, ideas to try at home, college planning and academic competitions.

Through the encouraging stories of other gifted children and the practical suggestions Fertig presents, Raising a Gifted Child offers many resources and creative ideas parents can utilize to tap into and further develop their child’s talents and capabilities.
Review: Midest Book Review - February 1, 2009
One could have all the talent in the world, but if it isn’t nurtured, it’ll go to waste. “Raising a Gifted Child: A Parenting Success Handbook” is a guide to parents who want to give their talented children all the tools they need to maximize their potential for the future. Just like those with learning disabilities, the other extreme need special care to assist them, and “Raising a Gifted Child” should be in the bookshelf of every parent of a gifted child.
