Elaine Landau is the author of several nonfiction books for children.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-8-- Narration by dyslexics combines with an overview of the disorder to give readers an informative and thought-provoking look at this often misunderstood condition. Beginning with the struggles of a young student to cover for his difficulties, the book goes on to describe the various manifestations of dyslexia, therapies, and outcomes. Emphasis on dyslexia as a dysfunction, rather than a curable disease, is a recurrent theme throughout, all the while maintaining a positive, upbeat tone. Content is a balance of text and illustrations, with an equal number of pages given to each. The full-color photographs depict afflicted children and young adults in a variety of situations, and offer insight into how their minds function. While several fictional titles have featured dyslexic characters, this is unique in its presentation of the topic for this age level, and deserves consideration. --Denise L. Moll, Lone Pine Elem .
