Henry Winkler, a dyslexic himself, recently released a new children’s book series, which is a prequel to his previously released Hank Zipzer original series. “Inspired by the true life experiences of Henry Winkler, whose undiagnosed dyslexia made him a classic childhood underachiever, the Hank Zipzer series is about the high-spirited and funny adventures of a boy with learning differences.”
This fabulous and creative series touches on the struggles of a child with dyslexia. A child with dyslexia is much more than his/her disability. Aside for being fun, witty and creative, this series will help a young reader gain a better understanding of a friend with a learning difference. And, if you have a learning difference, you may identify with Hank and his problems and realize you are not alone!
