Knees shows the ups and downs of life with dyslexia. We have done this book in the style and size of a chapter book so that younger children and older children at low reading levels can read what seems to be an older child's book.
We cover dyslexia’s symptoms and the reasons school can be hard for dyslexics. We talk about some famous people who had or have dyslexia.
The book is endorsed by the head master of a school where many of the children have dyslexia. He has dyslexia himself.

Knees:The Mixed-Up World of a Boy With Dyslexia by Vanita Oelschlager I requested this book from NetGalley and the review is voluntary. This is a great book for kids to learn about dyslexia in a fun way. It is about a boy with dyslexia and how he learns to deal with it in his own way. It is a rhyming book but not childish. It also gives a list of famous people that had or has dyslexia. The adorable pictures are clever and appealing and follow the story. The pictures are sure to make many smiles along the way. A fun book yet addresses an issue that is a tough one. Great job!

Simple graphics, easy words in a clean font, and the promotion of positive thinking all combine together to form a easy-to-read book for beginning and/or struggling readers. I would highly recommend it to anyone who has a child with dyslexia, and hope there's some way teachers can get their hands on it for a classroom resource for affected children they know.
