My 10 year old son was diagnosed with dylexia at the end of his 3rd grade year. I ran across Josh:A Boy with Dyslexia in our local library. My son Marcus and I read it together and discovered that Josh and he share alot of the same stories.
Josh is just like any 10 year old boy except he
has dyslexia. This book answers questions you might have about dyslexia in a humorous yet
soft-hearted way. Read Josh's thoughts as he travels through his days. Everything a boy with dylexia must wonder about comes alive on the
He is a kind-hearted little boy who feels really
content and happy in his home, neighborhood and school. He knows his way around and knows who he can trust. Then right in the middle of the school year, his family has to move to a new neighborhood.
Panic!! Now Josh has new street signs to decode, new kids to break-in and a new teacher to "fool".
There is, of course, a school bully who sets out to make Josh's life miserable. He calls him "retard" and teases Josh about being in the "special" class. But, when the situation arises and the bully needs help he is forced to turn to Josh. Josh becomes a hero to his brother,his father, the police and the bully. But, most of all he becomes a hero to himself. You will finish this book with a smile.
This book is easy reading and is hard to put down.

Format: Paperback
Never judge a book by the first sentence. I have to admit I was very hesitant to read this book after reading, "On Sunday morning, Josh found a roach sleeping in his toothbrush." I have to admit however, that this book was not only interesting but also heartwarming. Josh is in the 5th grade and was living in New York City when his family had to suddenly pick up and move to New Jersey. Josh was diagnosed with Dyslexia so immediately it was evident that he was not only scared to learn a new phone number and address, but he was also scared of making new friends. Simon, a 7th grader, is Josh's older brother who makes fun of Josh constantly for his learning disability. His mother is very sensitive to his needs but his father wishes he would "grow up and learn to do things on his own." Josh encounters the school bully the day before school starts. Buck, the bully, calls Josh a mental because of the teacher he has in school. On the first day of school, Josh makes new friends and finds out that his teacher is not as horrifying as his teachers back in New York City, who would constantly yell at him. Josh tries to fit in with this brother and Buck but it turns out to be quite a challenge. Buck becomes very close friends with Simon and they want to start a fishing club. Josh, Simon, and Buck go on a fishing trip and when it comes to Josh having to step up and take charge of a very difficult and scary challenge, he proceeds with caution. Josh becomes a hero not only to his brother, father, the local police, and even to Buck but also to one very important person. Himself. This book goes through the challenges of having dyslexia in a very light hearted manner. The reader learns a lot about the disorder and also how the child with the disorder feels.Read more ›
