Suzanne, I have a son who is dylsexic. I read aloud to him for many years. In highschool, I read the books he was assigned in English so that we could discuss them and I could make sure he understood them. Throughout his growing up, my only hope was that he would learn to read. I had no hope at all that he would love to read. He is a sophomore in college now. One of my happiest moments came after his first year when he told me he didn't re-sell Gulliver's Travels back to the bookstore because he loved the book so much.
Thanks for reading with us.


Suzanne, please post your chocolate marble cheesecake in your recipe forum -
Thanks - Doris -

I grew up as a reluctant reader. Now I write action-adventures & mysteries, especially for boys 8 and up, that kids hate to put down. My web site is at http://www.maxbooks.9k.com and my Books for Boys blog is at http://booksandboys.blogspot.com I also have a short story in a new book called LAY UPS and LONG SHOTS, published by Darby Creek Publishing. I'm also featured in an article in the 2009 edition of Children's Wrtier Guide.

My other books are all ranked by Accelerated Reader
