I Have Dyslexia. What Does That Mean?

I Have Dyslexia. What Does That Mean?

A book by Shelley and Delaney Dannenberg, ORDER HERE

A children's book written from the perspective of a child with dyslexia has gotten positive reviews!

My daughter is in her teens and has dyslexia. She received this book as a gift from a friend of mine, and it made her day! She has insight now into how dyslexia affected her early years, and this book "hit the nail on the head" of her experiences.

Wonderful book to use with my dyslexic students in helping them feel OK about themselves and understanding dyslexia.

I have two Dyslexic children and this book is spot on for their symptoms and how they have felt. I liked it so much I bought a copy for my LBS/LD teacher. If your child is being taught using a multi sensory or Orton-Gillingham based system it speaks about that as well. Perfect!

I Have Dyslexia. What Does That Mean? is the account of the struggles and challenges that Delaney Dannenberg experiences on a daily basis. Penned by her mother, Shelley Dannenberg, as if Delaney is telling her own story. I find it very novel (no pun intended) that mothers are used to tell their children's stories because they are too difficult for them to get their thoughts onto paper. Thank God for mom's and their writing talents. Shelley does an excellent job of informing the reader about both the challenges of Dyslexia and the talents that many Dyslexics have. Delaney, being gifted in art will maybe someday be illustrating her own books. She sees everything with such detail which is very common for Dyslexics. Shelley stresses the importance of tutors and teachers in a Dyslexics life and links the relationship between home and school, as this proves to be quite successful. Erika Jessop does a fine job of portraying Delaney's expressions and really makes you feel what she feels, be it happy or sad, a struggle or a success. The overall appearance is both appealing size wise to a beginner reader and a great asset to any elementary teacher's library. This book will help you understand how not everyone learns the same and that's ok. We are all different, but together we all make a great team with everyone having their own unique talent to offer. My hats off to Shelley for giving us one more book that Dyslexics can love to read and be proud of.
