really liked it
Read in January, 2009

Axline, the author said that, he was that boy that she ever met in the classroom who could teach her what it means to be a complete person.

My first impression when I looked at this book was it's a story about a boy who who has a mental problem. But when I read the prologue, then I changed my opinion tremendiously.

Dibs is about the experience of a little boy that has been justified as mentally retarded by his parents. However, his school teachers think different. In reality he was a brilliant, lonely child trapped in a prison of fear and rage, a prison from which only he could release himself. And through psychoterapy and love , he did.

From this story, I learnt from Miss A, who has devoted her energy and knowledge to help Dibs find himself, on see people and everything surround us in different perspectives.

I feel glad to had an opportunity to read this moving story.
