Knees: The Mixed Up World of a Boy with Dyslexia


Knees: The Mixed Up World of a Boy with Dyslexia Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 shows the ups and downs of life with dyslexia.
