Vera McLuckie and the Daydream Club
by Jane Evans
Oh! How I love this book! As a grandmother raising a child with ADHD and a Sensory Disorder, who hates being touched, this book definitely hits home and gives me hope.
Vera hates school, really Mondays, because she finds it hard to concentrates and it makes her teacher mad. So, Mondays are the beginning of the long, horrible week.
grandmothers and work together to solve each other’s problems.
Harry hates writing and spelling because the words just dance around on the page and Max can’t understand what people mean and hates to be touched, but he is a Math wiz!
Vera and her friends prove that not all children are the same and many have learning disabilities. It just takes teachers who understand this and care to work with these kind of children to help.
I love this book for many reasons. I wish it were given to every teacher in every grade and read to students in all grades. The only way feeling different can be changed is to inform others that those children are not different they just need understanding on a few problems they have and after that they are just like any other kid.
Another plus to this book is that it is written Dyslexie font for those with dyslexia can read it and the illustrations are drawn by Ruth Mutch, who herself is autistic. There is also a secret code on the back of the book to unlock – so cool!
I had to home school my grandson because of his ADHD and Sensory Disorder because the school couldn’t deal with these problems, so books like this make my heart smile and I pray this book gets out to every school to open up the understanding of children with these problems, because ALL children matter.
