My son loved this book!

My 10 year old son that is dyslexic hates to read, but was begging me to read him a chapter from this book each night. We had checked it out from the library and discovered it was over due before we were finished reading it. He asked me everyday to go to library and check it out so we could finish it. Books on dyslexia aren't usually written for a child. They are usually written for a parent to understand the disability. So this was a great resourse for my son. I hope Dr. L or others write more books like this directed toward children in the future.

Upside Down Kids - Helped Me!

I have three children with dyslexia and finding a book that helps them understand their problem without the scientific jargon is hard. This is an enjoyable read and helped me understand what the kids are going through. It also shows that an understanding teacher with a heart of gold can truly make a difference to their lives. More teachers should be taking the time to read books like these and they should be more understanding of the "New" children entering their classrooms.Congratulations Dr Levinson for a wonderful book it helped me and my children and I recommend this book to all parents that have dyslexic children.

This book made a tremendous break through in my son's ability to see his dyslexia as a medical problem. He always thought of himself dumb and stupid. His eyes filled with tears as he read about himself through the football players words. He identfied so well with the dyslexic character that since we read the book, he has never once referred to himself as dumb or stupid again. This book has given my son so much more than I could ever tell him. Every dyslexic child should read this book and hopefully they to will gain what a parent can't tell a child.
