Reading is a skill that is necessary in one’s quest for success. Parents and teachers play an essential role in helping children learn and master reading. Charlotte Kay Hill, a Reading Specialist, shares how she helped a little girl overcome her struggles in reading and become a confident and better reader in the new picture book, My Special Reading Teacher.

My Special Reading Teacher was written by Hill after Sadie’s mother, Sara Jane, wrote a very kind letter as an expression of gratitude to Hill. The story is told from the perspective of Sadie, a second grade student who cannot read as well as her other friends. Every day for a half an hour Sadie attended a special reading class where her reading teacher helped her learn how to read. Finally, after two years, Sadie was able to become a better and avid reader. As her confidence with her reading grew, Sadie began reading all the time, taking books with her everywhere she went. Sadie’s mother was certainly very proud of her daughter and very grateful to her teacher.

Filled with delightful artworks, My Special Reading Teacher is a heartwarming celebration of the teaching profession and an inspiring testament to others that anything is possible if one works hard and long enough.

This book will be featured at the 2013 American Library Association Midwinter Book Exhibit in Seattle, Wash. on June 25 – 28, 2013.
