The Boy Who Learned Upside Down (Heron Press, 2014) was recently chosen for a written review and KART book rating on the organization’s website. Boy, written by The Shadow Project’s Executive Director and Founder Christy Scattarella, M.A., received a five-star rating.
“This exciting, real-life story of a boy’s brave journey of determination is sure to interest and inspire any child who experiences difficulty with reading,” says the website. “The Boy Who Learned Upside Down is also a good book for siblings and classmates of reading-challenged children as it graphically describes what it’s like to overcome obstacles when learning to read and to spell.”
A five-star rating by KART (http://www.kartdbn.com) means Boy “may appeal to 70 to 95 percent of the general audience, and contains qualities that attract a high broad interest,” according to the website.
The book, illustrated by Winky Wheeler, is written for children ages 5 to 9.
