I read this book every year as a way to open the discussion of Hopes and Dreams and differing abilities in the classroom. This is one of my favorite books from one of my favorite authors, Patricia Polacco.
"Overjoyed at the thought of starting school and learning to read, Trisha is dismayed when all the letters and numbers in her books are jumbled up. Only Mr. Falker recognizes her problem and takes the time to lead her to the magic of reading." Google Books
