A Nasty Dose of the Yawns: An Adventure with Dyslexia and Literacy Difficulties (Paperback)

£11.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Zack has always found school difficult. Even though he is good at maths and excellent at flicking elastic bands, trying to read and write is like trying to fight a Kracken. One day, when he discovers the rest of his class infected by a mysterious sleeping sickness, Zack draws on his strengths resulting in some unexpected consequences . . .





This engaging story, suitable for readers aged 8-12, explores some of the challenges faced by learners who find literacy unusually difficult. Alongside the practical difficulties of living in a world that assumes good levels of literacy, it explores some of the psychological impacts of struggling to achieve a skill that most children acquire with relative ease. Ultimately, it shows children that they can draw on their strengths and overcome the challenges in their way.





Also available as a set with a supporting guide, this book operates as a fun and entertaining standalone story, as well as an educational opportunity. The range of vocabulary means it can be used flexibly, for independent, paired or whole-group reading. It is a must-have book for every classroom.
