This is a story about a girl who struggles with dyslexia and her teacher, Mr. Falker, who helped her and refused to give up on her. It highlights the impact of kindness, hard work, and determination. This is one of my favorite books and one I would read in my classroom.

This is a great book about determination and empathy between students and teachers.

(2018) Mason Burke is a middle schooler with learning disabilities dealing with bullies, grief, and the cop who suspects Mason is responsible for the death of his own best friend. He is also utterly charming. Extra points for (spoiler!) a dog of my favorite literary breed: the Dog-that-survives-the-entire-book-hound. It's a rare breed but (attention authors!) the *best*

Thanks @mandarchy for recommending this one!

Texreader I ❤️ your description of the dog! 8mo
mandarchy I'm glad you liked it. Such a great author! I love the name of this dog breed. We need more of these 🐕 🐶 dogs ❤️ 8mo

I just discovered a new accessibility feature on the kindle app! A colored “ruler” to help me track where I am on the page! I‘ve been using the page scrolling mode to do that, aligning what I‘m reading with the top of my phone, and I‘m excited to try out this new feature. #Dyslexia

charl08 Sounds great! 8mo

This book is sadly lacking in Proust and squid. I wanted to like it, but half of this book was a slog in technical brain science terms which I‘m sure is interesting to neuroscientists, but difficult to follow for those that are not. The good bits: a brief history of early writing systems and how the Sumerians, Akkadians and Greeks developed alphabets and trained children to read and write and some insight into evolutionary advantages of dyslexia.

A Walk in the Words | Hudson Talbott

Hudson struggles to read while his peers seem to have no trouble. #CharactersReading

This would be a good book for kids who are slow reading or who may have a reading learning disability to help them feel less alone and foster some hope.
