Read in April, 2012

Another episode in Patricia Polacco's story-version memoirs to her past (ala Thank You, Mr. Falker). In this case she relates her time with Miss Chew, who taught her to SEE, to learn the language of emotion and images. It also relates the way in which Mrs. Chew helped further diagnose Polacco's reading disability and lead her to further support. All this depute calling her "Theresa" throughout their lessons.
This might be better enjoyed by an adult audience, or at least a very sophisticated older reader.
