Reversed by Lois Letchford is a fabulous memoir about a mother who watched her son struggling in school and took the bull by the horns to learn to help him - despite having learning disabilities of her own.
I had the amazing opportunity to chat with Lois yesterday (for an Online for Authors podcast airing on July 5th) about her work and her belief that all children can be taught to read if we can make the learning concrete, relatable, and fun. When these things are present, learning is nearly automatic, even for learners who struggle.
I loved the stories found within these pages. I laughed. I cried. I shook with rage. There were some educators I honestly wanted to strangle! And after talking with Lois, I'm glad I don't have the opportunity to meet any of them in person because I might not be able to contain myself.
What I love is Lois' outlook. Her mindset is that every child can learn - it's just a matter of providing the right tools in the right order in the right way.
I highly recommend Reversed for anyone wanting a "feel good in the end" memoir. And if you have or had struggling learners, then you'll want to read it that much more.
