The Don't Give Up Kid (Picture Book)

Released September 2009

Reviewed by Tracy Farnsworth

The reissue of Jeanne Gehret's storybook about a boy with dyslexia is certain to touch the heart of parents and their children.

Alex is an inventor. His current project involves finding a way to reach the cookie jar on the top of the fridge. He can't build it because he can't read. Soon his parents take him to a specialist who uncovers he has dyslexia. How will he overcome this learning disability?

THE DON'T GIVE UP KID is geared for 9 to 12 year olds, but I think younger kids will find it enjoyable too. The story includes bright, colorful drawings, easy to read narrative and a Q&A that parents can use to get their child talking. Also included in the back of the book is a list of resources parents can use to research more about their child's learning disability.
