    Thank You, Mr. Falker by Patricia Polacco. Picture Book. About a gor Trisha who cant wait for school to start but soon becomes down when she cant read or anything because she sees the letters all jumbled. Her classmates make fun and she hates school but one teacher sees and starts to help her and sees she is good at drawing. Its a very good book and can be used to show not to make fun to the kids.

    Patricia Polacco is now one of America's most loved children's book creators, but once upon a time, she was a little girl named Trisha starting school. Trisha could paint and draw beautifully, but when she looked at words on a page, all she could see was jumble. It took a very special teacher to recognize little Trisha's dyslexia: Mr. Falker, who encouraged her to overcome her reading disability. Patricia Polacco will never forget him, and neither will we.

It is important that kids realize we read for lots of reasons - and one of those reasons is to learn something new! Use picture books to introduce your little ones to concepts such as counting. It brings together the joy of reading with the joy of learning. Don't worry if they don't "get it" the first time through! Just have fun learning together.
