The right book can help dyslexic children get excited about read

The subject is true...and here's a link to a success story about a girl with dyslexia in the UK who began to love reading & amazed her family & teachers -- just from one book! The book is The First Escape by G.P. Taylor and it's the first book in the Dopple Ganger Chronicles...it's an illustra-novella, which means it has large print in novel format alternating with illustrations in a manga/comic-book style. There's hope for children with dyslexia, as evident by this story.

Thanks for the heads up on the book. I am going to try to find it for my boys.

Really, it just has to be the right book. Regardless of what it is. My older sister is dyslexic. For her, it was Encyclopedia Brown books. My younger brother is also dyslexic and for him it wasn't until Eragon came out that he actually liked to read. Now they're both very avid readers--more so than I am and I like books if I have the time to read them, but it's not one of those things that I'm ridiculously passionate about if I have other things to do.
