Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Silverman
When an obviously bright young boy (Davey Fischer) has a learning disability that prevents him from being able to read, his embarrassment and chagrin are almost palpable. And if his father refuses to see his problem as something he can't help, and insists that the boy is just lazy and inattentive, his problems are compounded. One chapter is devoted to Mr. Fischer and his inability to accept any imperfection in his son. We're told why, and what he feels and thinks. This all might have been told from Davey's point of view, so that the intended audience would pay a little more attention. The principal of the Jewish day school Davey attends is about to tell the Fischers that Davey can't stay in the school at all because of his disruptive behavior. We're told from his (the principal's) point of view that he doesn't understand, either. It's difficult for the principal. He feels like he's the one who is failing-failing to get this child to love learning. But two teachers-the Hebrew teacher and the special education teacher-have developed a program tailor-made for children like Davey. We see the entire situation from their points of view, too. The book gets a little preachy here about learning and obedience, but the most serious defect is that a lot is told from the four adults' points of view. However, the story moves quickly as the teachers join forces to try to open the father's mind. It's a struggle that Davey's father must "lose" in order to win a bright future for his son.
