Overview

A story based on the real experiences of a girl who couldn’t read. What is school like for Jenny and other children like her, and can she be helped? Read the heartwarming story of Jenny and her battle with dyslexia.

This project started when Demi said to me, “There’s one thing I would love to be able to do, but I know it will never happen in my whole life, and that is to write a book.” I told her about writers who have lots of brilliant ideas but need a secretary to do the writing. I volunteered, and “Jenny Can’t Read” was born.

It is the story of a ten-year-old girl who is dyslexic and can’t read. The first part of the book deals with a number of related issues, all based on true stories that Demi and other children have told me. These include the following:

*Thinking there is something wrong with you. You are stupid.

*Dreading certain lessons and pretending to be sick.

*Having an unsympathetic teacher.

*Being bullied.

*Worrying a lot and feeling ashamed.

*Hating school.

In the second half of the book, she gets help and improves greatly. Issues include the following:

*Getting help

*Understanding dyslexia and how to improve

*The effect of a brilliant teacher

*Dealing with bullying

*Improving self-esteem and confidence

This book will offer hope and encouragement to all children who are struggling to acquire reading and writing skills and to the teachers and parents who work with them. I strongly recommend that you read Jenny’s story.
