Format: Hardcover
Those with undiscovered dyslexia have difficulty reading and learning conventionally; these students can grow to hate school and have a poor self image. It's a bit ironic that discovering one has dyslexia can be a positive and life altering moment, as exemplified by the character Theo on the Cosby show.

In this book Hudson hates school because spelling torments him, frustrating the little guy and causing his classmates to make fun of him. A wise teacher has Hudson tested for dyslexia, and with a new learning program Hudson thrives and begins to actually like school.

The story is fun and well told; it's made fun with pictures of little lizards sprinkled judiciously throughout the book. Ella Hudson uses her story to teach a lesson about dyslexia, and at book's end is a page of text explaining in plain language what dyslexia is. For a young child who may have dyslexia, this book could be therapeutic and comforting.
