Book Description

Sept. 1 2007 Live and Learn Books
This is one of several titles in Barron's Live and Learn series for younger children. They are books that take a child's point of view, especially if the child suffers from some physical challenge or lack self-confidence in going about everyday activities. These attractively illustrated picture storybooks encourage kids never to be afraid of a challenge. Following each story are four pages of suggested activities that relate to the book's theme. A final two-page section offers advice to parents. The child in this story knows the alphabet, but she sometimes has trouble putting all the letters together to read words. No matter how hard she tries, she often mixes up the letters or writes them backwards. She's unhappy until her teacher explains that she has dyslexia, and that she can be helped to read and write correctly.

It's Called
Dyslexia


Whoever said that learning to read and write is easy? The little girl in this story is unhappy and she no longer enjoys school. When learning to read and write, she tries to remember which way the letters go but she often gets them all mixed up. After she discovers that dyslexia is the reason for her trouble, she begins to understand that with extra practice and help from others, she will begin to read and write correctly. At the same time, she also discovers a hidden talent she never knew existed!

5.0 out of 5 stars A good "feel good" book for dyslexic children March 1 2008
By Julie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this for my 7 year old dyslexic daughter. She was very excited to hear the story told from the dyslexic main character. The basic summary of the book is that she was excited about school and then got frustrated with school because reading was so hard for her but easy for other kids. Her teacher wanted to talk to her parents, it made her worried but then it turned out that her teacher wanted to tell her parents that she was concerned and wanted to do tests on her. They learned she had dyslexia, they got her help and now she loves reading. It made my daughter feel like she could some day enjoy reading too.

If only schools help kids with dyslexia as well as the book says....

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for kids with dyslexia March 22 2009
By Carrie Fancett Pagels - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am a psychologist and have a child with special needs. This is an excellent book for a child who is between the ages of 6-11 and has dyslexia. If you purchase the book, I would recommend you read it first to see if there is anything that you think might bother or confuse your child. For instance, if you don't want to use the label "dyslexia" you could substitute "reading problem" or a term you feel comfortable with your child hearing. This book is well written and focuses on the strengths that children can have despite having a learning disability. The solutions for the child are too simplistic but get the primary message across. My son really enjoyed this book and I plan on recommending this book in my practice.

3.0 out of 5 stars good for younger kids Aug. 8 2010
By hchurch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is one instance in which I wish I had been able to use the "search inside" feature to see how the book looks inside. It's a very good story to share with a first or second grader but far too young in wording and storyline for my rising 4th grader. It explains well (to a younger audience) the frustration of learning to read and the testing and special help in class, and assures the reader that dyslexic doesn't mean "not smart."

I would recommend this book to someone just beginning the journey.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's called Dyslexia Aug. 9 2008
By P. L. Comrie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Great book to read aloud with a group of children and / or parents. Such a reading gives a great platform for informed discussion and developing further understanding. Also great to use as a family for the same reasons.
