Review: Knees: The mixed up world of a boy with dyslexia
Knees: The mixed up world of a boy with dyslexia by Vanita Oelschlager
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
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.
MoonShine Art Spot review:
Oelschlager done an amazing job of writing an uplifting and fun book about a serious situation for many children and adults. I was fortunate to receive this book free in exchange for an honest review. Knees is told by a young boy who is dyslexic making it more relatable to a child dealing with the symptoms and suggestions for helping deal with the situation. The illustrations greatly add to the positive feel of the book.
I think a wonderful addition is the mention of famous people who were also dyslexic lets the children know that they too can be successful. Everyone learns differently and deserves to feel good about themselves, and realize they have other strengths too. A wonderful message is related in a very positive way that offers both entertainment and hope for those who experience dyslexia or love someone who does.
