One Boy's Courageous Battle Against Dyslexia

At least five percent of the world's population is affected by dyslexia. But all nine-year-old Charlie knows is that the other kids make fun of him. Called dumb at school for his inability to concentrate on reading, he feels depressed and alone. His confidence and self-esteem are at all-time lows. For Charlie, reading is a daily battle against words that he seems destined to lose.

Then, hope arrives in the form of someone close to him who understands. What follows is a remarkable story of promise and inspiration—and the amazing gift that shows just how wrong the bullies are about Charlie.

Written by an expert on learning disabilities, Charlie: A Boy with Reading Difficulties and His Dream uncovers the incredible challenges and potential of millions of people just like Charlie. This book is perfect for showing those affected by the disorder they aren't alone, and for teaching sensitivity about all learning disorders to educators, children and parents.
