Knees

5 Stars

Publisher: 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.

My Review: Knees is the story of a young boy with Dyslexia. He explains a little bit about what it is and how it affects him. The idea of the book is to get children with Dyslexia to persevere and find out what they are good at. His parents and teachers encourage him to do his best. They help him find his strengths and support him in his endeavours. This is a great book for children and families that struggle with dyslexia as well as to read to a group of students with friends and classmates with the same problem. I love that the profits form this book will be going to a school that helps students with Dyslexia. The illustrations are cute and the book is even published with cream coloured pages to make it easier for people with dyslexia to read it.

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
