“Fish in a Tree,” by Lynda Mullaly Hunt
Sixth grader Ally Nickerson used to try to hide her dyslexia by being a troublemaker. But with help from her new teacher, she discovers that people can be smart in different ways. Filled with endearing and often flawed characters, this inspiring book can be a life changer. Fish in a Tree, at 288 pages, is not short. But audio and text-to-speech versions are available. It’s also a great book for you and your child to read together.
