HASH(0x9b56d15c) out of 5 stars A good "feel good" book for dyslexic children March 1 2008
By Julie - Published on
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....

HASH(0x9ba92b88) out of 5 stars Great book for kids with dyslexia March 22 2009
By Carrie Fancett Pagels - Published on
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.

HASH(0x9af3a270) out of 5 stars good for younger kids Aug. 8 2010

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.

HASH(0x9c442a20) out of 5 stars A must have Dec 26 2012
By H. Robbins - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read this book to my son after he had been diagnosed with dyslexia. We had not shared the diagnosis with him yet and honestly I wasn't sure how to approach the subject. I ordered this book because of the many other positive reviews it had received. As soon as I finished reading the book to my son (who's 8), he turned to me and asked: "Am I dyslexic?" I shook my head yes, and at first he seemed upset, but then he looked up and said "so I'm smart like Walt Disney and Leonardo?... YES!" He seemed so relieved to find out that there was a reason he'd been struggling with reading and that he too could be successful like these other famous people. It was wonderful for him to know he was not alone.
