My Storee

USD $17.99

Just because you can’t spell doesn’t mean you can’t write!

A young boy has a mind full of wonderful stories but when he writes them down, day after day, they come back covered in red pen after his teachers have corrected his spelling. It seems his dyslexia will always hold him back from sharing his creativity the way he longs to. Then a new teacher arrives at school! My Storee is an engaging and creatively designed picture book that provides inspiration and support for reluctant writers and dyslexics, and shows the importance and power of good teachers.

SPECIFICATIONS: Hardback | 245 x 255 / 9½ x 10 Inches | Colour | 32 Pages
