Hello everyone! Today I’m going to be sharing with you two books that I feel are really important and life-changing.
Fish In A Tree by Lynda Mullay Hunt
This book is a middle grade novel and the main character has dyslexia. My younger sister has dyslexia and this really gave me a new perspective on her experience and was very eye-opening.
“Ally has been smart enough to fool a lot of smart people. Every time she lands in a new school, she is able to hide her inability to read by creating clever yet disruptive distractions. She is afraid to ask for help; after all, how can you cure dumb?
However, her newest teacher Mr. Daniels sees the bright, creative kid underneath the trouble maker. With his help, Ally learns not to be so hard on herself and that dyslexia is nothing to be ashamed of.” (Goodreads)
Dear World, How Are You? by Toby Little
This is a collection of heart-warming letters from a little boy to people all around the world and is honestly just a beautiful book.
“With the help of his mum, Toby started handwriting and posting letters to everyone from research scientists in Antarctica to game-keepers in Chad and even the Pope. Not only did Toby achieve his goal but the world wrote back.
Dear World, How Are You? is a collection of the most fascinating and heart-warming letters he sent and received. It shows that the world is only as big as your imagination and is full of potential friends, waiting to be discovered, no matter where you live.” (Goodreads)
And that’s it! Thank you for reading this post 🙂
