Now out: The Map Challenge (Alloway)

This illustrated short story is written with kids who have dyslexia in mind. The publisher notes that the font is one that is more easily read by kids who have dyslexia.

It is summer and time for camp. Sammy and his fellow campers are given the task of finding their group’s red flag. Sammy, who has dyslexia, is assigned to read the map. This causes him understandable anxiety but he tries to trudge through. Of course, there are issues, the group gets lost and then, Sammy’s highly tuned, visual memory helps to save the day!

This book may well appeal to children who face similar challenges. It also gently reminds other children to not tease and recognize everyone’s skills. There is a helpful section for adults at the end of the book.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this e galley in exchange for my honest review.
