Thank You, Mr. Falker is about a girl named Patricia who has dyslexia. So it is hard for her to read and do math. Children often made fun of her. One teacher, Mr. Falker, said “Stop!”, when children made fun of her. A boy named Eric did not listen to him. Read on to find out how Patricia learned to read.
I like the book because it has really good illustrations. They really seem to come alive on the pages. The author made the story really great. I also like it because once you read the first paragraph, it just makes you want to read more!
I would recommend this book to people who like stories about other people’s lives because you can read about a little girl’s life and what happened in it.
