Thank You, Mr. Falker
by Patricia Polacco

"A children's book set in 1950's is the true, heart touching story of a child's struggle with dyslexia... As my son also learned to read in 4th grade, after years of ardent desire and struggles, I found this an exceptionally touching book. Highly recommended for elementary students (and their parents, teachers and classmates)."
