Jackie French has written a great guide to help navigate a child through the difficulties of learning to read. I enjoyed her own personal insights into reading with dyslexia, with a unique way of tackling words on a page.

My son had struggled to learn to read, and I found Jackie's guide very inspiring with plenty of advice written in her very warm, witty and intelligent style.

I did not find this book helpful at all. Some of the suggestions for games are useful but for the most part the author is listing off signs of different learning styles and ways to figure out what sort of reader/learner your child is. This is not something that should be left up to a parent.

Though none of my children have reading difficulties this was a great book to read for other reasons. Also it is always good to have new ideas and tricks up my sleeve!
