Cartwheels: Finding Your Special Kind of Smart (Paperback)
The perfect story for opening conversations and explaining the basics of dyslexia to children.
Lively Sloane loves to make up dances, put on shows, and do art. But as she heads into first grade, nothing frustrates her more than reading. In math, the numbers go together right in her brain, but no matter how hard she looks at letters, and no matter how many times her teacher and parents say "focus," she would much rather do cartwheels. She feels sad that she isn't keeping up with her class and isn't reading the "right way." Then, she finds out that she has dyslexia. Join Sloane on her journey to learn to read, gain confidence, and find her own special kind of smart.
Based on the real-life teacher/student relationship between veteran first-grade teacher, author Tracy Peterson, and student Sloane LaFrance.
