""Parenting a gifted child is no picnic,'' the authors state, and they write from experienceboth are parents of gifted children. Saunders, an educator, and Espeland, a children's book author, speak with authority, warmth, humor and above all, common sense, as they discuss such subjects as how to tell if a child is gifted, the emotional problems that result from being ``a child of promise,'' ways to stimulate a child and the advantages and disadvantages of early schooling. They present complex information about brain development as well as wonderful games that should challenge a child. They also offer valuable advice on how to avoid parent burnout and remind parents that ``children are children first and gifted second.'' The book concludes with a directory of organizations for parents of gifted children and a list of books on the subject. Illustrated with black-and-white photographs and whimsical line drawings.
