Wonderful read for parents and children 😄
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 learn to read she tries to remember which way the letters go but she often gets them mixed up.

I have now passed it on to my daughter and grandson.

This book is a great resource for children with dyslexia and other learning disabilities because it shares accurate information from a child's perspective. However, the content is shared in a formal manner and might not be engaging enough for many children. I appreciate the parent's note and suggestions for activities in the back of the book.

Imagine the frustration of being able to understand but not being able to express. Dyslexia occurs in about ten percent of the population causing delays in speech, reading, and writing. Knowing others struggle can go a long way in motivating a child to keep working. This book is geared to the young child in need of reassurance and encouragement.
