October Is National Dyslexia Awareness Month and the Book, "The Little Dyslexic Angel," Teaches Children to Have Faith in Themselves
RENTON, Wash., Oct. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In Robert Warrington's book, The Little Dyslexic Angel Christmas Edition, the little angel must read her name and learn her lesson, which God has written on the wind and hidden in the rainbows, before she can earn her wings and fly to Heaven. But all she sees are dots, lines, and curves. On her journey she meets the angels of serenity, courage, and wisdom, learns the importance of determination and perseverance, and goes on a magical sleigh ride with Santa.
"I loved this story. My mom teaches dyslexic kids and they sometimes turn their letters around. I used to do that when I was first learning to read and write," Zoey Crane, age 7, http://www.readerviewskids.com, and the story, "...teaches youngsters they aren't alone in their struggles with dyslexia, that many share their experiences, and they are not odd or different," Gail Welborn, http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/430107197 .
"Angels are for everyone..." James McQuiston, http://neufutur.com, and The Little Dyslexic Angel Christmas Edition, available from Gazebo Books Publishing, "...is about hope, making your dreams come true, and having faith in yourself," Dyslexia Headlines, http://dyslexiaheadlines.com.
Fifteen to twenty percent of people around the world are affected by dyslexia. "Shelley Moore, publisher at Gazebo Books, points out that Oct. 8 to 14 is International Dyslexia Awareness Week in the U.K. and Canada, where in the U.S. it has been expanded to National Dyslexia Awareness Month," Raymond Rendleman, http://portlandtribune.com.
This is Mr. Warrington's first children's book and was inspired by his youngest niece who has dyslexia. He was truly moved by her struggle to learn to read. She told him that when she looked at a page in a book, the letters moved around and looked like a bunch of dots, lines, and curves. That's when the idea for the book flew into his head. "Reading is like having wings. Through books you can fly to anywhere at any time," Robert says. So, make learning to read a holiday event, and give your own little angels their wings for Christmas.
