Synopsis

Words Get Knotted by Pippa Sweeney

Dyslexia is a difficulty with words, and it is often misunderstood and sometimes unrecognised. If dyslexia remains undetected, it can affect a child's confidence and educational achievements. This charming, beautifully designed book aims to empower children with dyslexia to recognise and understand their own difficulties and by sharing it with friends and family help them to understand too. It is a picture book for an adult to share with a young child but the use of the visual metaphor (wool and knitting being compared to words and writing) minimizes the need for words and adds to its appeal.

Reviews

About the Author

When Pippa Sweeney's eldest daughter was found to have dyslexia at the age of twenty, she became passionate about raising dyslexia awareness. She was subsequently herself diagnosed with dyslexia, revealing the common hereditary link. Pippa lives in Ireland with her husband, children, sheep and hens, where she writes and illustrates for children.
