Boy Who Learned Upside Down
Based on A True StoryBoard Book - 2013
The Boy Who Learned Upside Down is based on the story of a real boy named Alex who turned I can't! into I can!, and Shadow, the dog that loved him. School was hard for Alex. He had a learning challenge dyslexia that turned reading into an endless chase after runaway words and made it difficult to pay attention, focus and follow directions as if he were learning upside down. For youngsters like Alex, the struggle to read, to write, and to belong often becomes too much. They often give up, on school and on themselves. But with understanding and support, as Alex received, they can grow up to make a difference. Artists, athletes, and entrepreneurs who once wondered, What's wrong with me?have gone on to change the world. Filled with humor, adventure, and a really cool dog, The Boy Who Learned Upside Down shows that what causes a child shame may be the source of his or her greatest gift.
