“In this gem of a book, Dr. Sally Shaywitz uses her voice, her images, her brain–and yes, her heart–to shine a piercing and clarifying light on what we so inadequately call ‘dyslexia.’ What is more, she shows how almost everyone can overcome it.” —Daniel D. Federman, M.D.,
“Fascinating. . . . Shaywitz has illuminated the inner workings of dyslexic minds.” —Time
“An important book.... For the first time, scientists are understanding how the brain works...in the act of reading. Front and center now is Sally Shaywitz.” –The Baltimore Sun

I am on my third reading of this book and this is my second copy. I have lent it out many times, and bought at least three copies for other people.
This time around I am reading it for three reasons. First, I want to refresh my memory and sharpen my skills to better work with a 38 year old woman who reads at a first grade level. After rereading the sections on identifying dyslexia, I am certain she has the disorder and now I can better focus our time together on her needs.
I am also rereading the book because one of my young relatives does not like to read. I am looking for strategies to help her enjoy reading, which is so important for learning.
Finally, I am looking for books and ideas so I can help my first grandchild, who is still a baby, be ready to read. Dr. Shaywitz stresses that rhyming songs and poems are essential for young children’s reading readiness and she also suggests books to read to them.
Thank you Dr. Shaywitz for such a wonderful, helpful, interesting book.
