BOOK REVIEW: HORATIO HUMBLE BEATS THE BIG “D” BY MARGOT E. FINKE

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Many school children are diagnosed with dyslexia every year. Parents are often completely lost not knowing how to handle such devastating news.

If you are a parent or teacher looking for a way to talk to a child about dyslexia I highly recommend reading Horatio Humble Beats the Big “D”.

Horatio Humble Beats the Big “D” is a fun rhyming book written by Margot Finke. Margot is a talented author who has a unique ability to write in beautiful rhyme. In this delightful book, the author tackles a very serious subject in a fun and easy to read story.

Dealing and understanding dyslexia is not easy, but Horatio’s story offers hope that plausible solutions are possible. The story details ways that all children with dyslexia can overcome the disability with help from teachers and supportive parents.

The illustrations, masterfully done by Ellen Gurak, capture quite well the emotional up and down Horatio goes through upon learning about his dyslexia.

Lastly, the author provides two pages of reference material included at the back of the book. A parent with a dyslexic child will find the resource very informative. I am sure parents and children will be encouraged to learn that Bill Gates and Albert Einstein overcame dyslexia along with famous actors such as Tom Cruise and Orlando Bloom.
