Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review The ideas section is useful because it explains other difficulties children with dyslexia may face, including phonemic awareness, rapid automatised naming and working memory. Overall, a very enjoyable and easy but informative read. -- Children & Young People Now This inspirational book is a great resource for children, parents, and teachers alike. Written from a child's perspective, it explains a complicated topic in a simple manner and provides an accurate overview of the most common symptoms of dyslexia (including strengths), an insightful account of how it feels to have dyslexia, and ways that teachers and parents can provide appropriate emotional and instructional supports. -- Nancy Mather, Ph.D., Professor of Special Education, University of Arizona The book is wonderful. It has a lot of good information on dyslexia and it is easy to read and understand. But most of all, I liked that it demystifies dyslexia and lets kids see that they are not alone with their struggles. -- Rhonda, a parent of a child with dyslexia
