Review:

Gr 7 Up-Rooke has collected interviews with children with dyslexia in order to share their experiences and to provide readers with an idea of best practices in and out of school. The book effectively highlights a variety of experiences with dyslexia by featuring interviews with over 100 different young people from around the world ranging from ages eight to 18. The conversations are organized around unifying themes such as achieving goals and role models. These segments are presented in the first person, lending the work an authentic and relatable tone. However, there is an unedited style to the text, which may challenge readers. Artwork by kids with dyslexia is peppered throughout. Back matter features tips from those interviewed for the book, as well as lists of what teachers should and shouldn't do to help their students with dyslexia. VERDICT This collection of interviews frames dyslexia in a positive light and would be most useful to parents and educators looking to support students with dyslexia. --School Library Journal

Students with dyslexia may struggle in the education system each and every day. This book embraces dyslexia and knows that every child will unlock their potential to succeed! --Deborah Hewes, Editor of "Embrace a Different Kind of Mind - Personal Stories of Dyslexia" and DAS Head of Publicity and Publications

What a wonderful book! Kudos to Margaret Rooke for helping bring the insights and wisdom of these remarkable young people to the world. Dyslexia is My Superpower is a great read for children and parents and teachers and classrooms. --Fernette Eide MD, co-author of Dyslexic Advantage

From the Author:
