Gold Medal, Mom's Choice AwardsI like school, but sometimes I get confused.
That's because I learn in a different way.
But guess what? That's OK.

The story introduces the concept of a learning disability in concrete terms for younger students, emphasizing that they are capable of learning, but they do
so in a different way. The story also supports a personalized discussio

This is an informational book about learning disabilities that is good for younger students. It talks about students who struggle with math, reading, or writing. But it also focuses on what the students are good at and it says that it’s OK if you are not good at everything. It explains what Learning Disabilities, LD’s, are. It says they have to work extra hard at things but that doesn’t mean you aren’t trying; it just means you learn things in a different way. This would have been a great book f ...more

I wish I had this book a few years back when I first discovered the severity of my daughters focus issues. This is a nice discussion book for parents or educators to have with elementary age students about learning disabilities and how they affect people in different ways, and that it is o.k. The afterward portion is for the adult to read ahead of time so they see how to best make this into a conversational book. Since my daughter is older we read this portion together and chatted about our shar ...more

This book is about the challenges some students face when they are at school and are unable or uncomfortable in their learning environment. This story encourages readers struggling with similar problems, they too can be successful through certain strategies to help them learn. What stuck out to me in this book was the use of text in the book. It is not like any picture book in that it uses a little bit more complex wording and more words per page than the simpler pict

This is an encouraging book about young children who have learning differences and how they learn to cope with those differences. The book affirms to young children that learning differences are okay and many people have them and learn to overcome them with the right coping tools.

This book is meant to be exceptionally helpful for kids who've been (probably recently) diagnosed with a learning disorder, and I imagine it would be good for them. I especially liked the gentle mention of "it's not because you aren't trying," because I've definitely heard that more than once and cringed. I also liked that it wasn't about one kid with one disability, but that there were several different problems and coping methods brought up.

This nonfiction picture book is a good introduction to the topic of learning disabilities. There is no story here; it is an informational book best suited for elementary school students. Since there are many different types of learning disabilities, not all learning-disabled children will see themselves reflected in this book. But the main focus of the book is to impart that learning differently is okay. This message is repeated quite frequently throughout the book and is the most important thin ...more

Very simple picture book that explains and introduces the fact that there are some kids that are struggling to learn based in different learning styles.
