Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
Janover, a woman who has dyslexia, writes about its effects on a fifth grade boy in Josh. Josh has been teased all his life by his gifted brother, but things get much worse when he moves. His brother is befriended by a bullying boy who learns of his special class status and calls him a "mental". Josh finds his smaller class much more supportive, he meets friends, and in a victorious moment saves the day, fighting against his disabilities to do so. Janover portrays the disability as only one who knows what dyslexia feels like the inside can do. This eighty-six page book has large print, is not overwhelming to a child with reading difficulties, and has an excellent afterward that is helpful to parent, teacher and child.
