I love reading, Christian, Biographies, Autobiographies, Cookbooks, Fiction, Historical Fiction, History, Memoir, Mystery, Romance, Suspense, Thriller, Parenting, Marriage, Christian Counseling, Health, Natural and Herbal, Childcare and Teaching, Inspirational as well as Alaskan.

I prefer a printed copy that I can hold in my hands and become old friends with, but will also accept E-books in Kindle, PDF or Nook formats.

I am a Christian and seek to glorify my Lord. As such I will not read any erotic, paranormal, vampire, or such books. I also will stop reading any book that has bad language (Cursing and taking my Lord’s name in vain.), and books with gratuitous sex. This is one reason I have chosen to be associated with the Publishing Companies and the Authors that are on my site because I feel safe recommending them to others.

"If You're So Smart...." Helps Explain Dyslexia to Children

If You're So Smart, How Come You Can't Spell Mississippi?If You're So Smart, How Come You Can't Spell Mississippi? by Barbara Esham
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

My Husband and 13yr old daughter are both dyslexic. This book is a delightful way of explaining dyslexia to not just children, but adults who don't understand it also! I have read many, many books on this subject and this is one of the best written.
The only thing is that a dyslexic child will not be able to read this book for themselves which is frustrating to them. In showing how smart the little girl is and how smart the adults with dyslexia are and the great things they grow up to learn and do. There are some huge words used that a child with dyslexia would grow very frustrated with and would not try to read this book on their own. Which would in turn leave them feeling not as smart as the other dyslexics.
I wish this had been explained again at the end instead of just the beginning when her Dad was talking to her. All in all a great begining to this series and as a teacher, Daycare giver and Mother I can't wait to find the rest and try them all out!
