Dyslexia Awareness Week – Gillian Cross Book Review
I was asked to review The Mystery of the Man with the Black Beard by Gillian Cross, a book aimed at 8-12 year olds and you can hear my review in the video below. Because this was my first video review I didn’t quite feel brave enough to put my face on camera.
One of the excellent features of all Barrington Stoke books is their format. Tinted pages, a special font, extra spacing – all designed to help combat the challenges with reading that people with dyslexia can have. Find out more here. I also love how they are working with popular writers to create a variety of accessible and enticing stories with age-appropriate content.
You can find out more about Dyslexia and how to seek support on the British Dyslexia Association Website
