Dyslexia-Friendly Books

Dyslexia-Friendly Books Series Cover

At Royal Fireworks, we want your child to succeed. We offer books that we believe your child will enjoy reading, both because they are engaging and intellectually challenging and also because they are beautiful. However, children who have visual processing problems often struggle to read, and we want to make sure that those children are able to enjoy our books as well. We are publishing some of our titles in new versions that contain a special dyslexia-friendly font that is designed to make it easier for children (and adults) to read. It is part of our ongoing effort to make our books accessible to everyone who wants to read them. This font was developed by someone with dyslexia, and anecdotal evidence shows that it does indeed help. We provide sample pages of the books that will enable you to see for yourself the difference. We will keep adding titles, so check back often to see what's new!

Logic-Math Exercises for Young Children: Dyslexia Version Cover

The exercises in this book are designed to develop critical-thinking skills in young children through a variety of math concepts. These concepts include number signs, counting, addition, subtraction, fractions, decimals, graphs, geometry, volume, and more, as well as number concepts that are involved in such topics as time and money. The exercises involve organizing information, sequencing, pattern decoding, understanding relationships, inferring, solving analogies, and deducing. Many of the lessons are pictorial so that they can be completed by children who have not yet learned how to read. However, there is a range of challenge levels in the book so that children who are strong readers or who are advanced intellectually will also find excercises that engage them and require them to put on their thinking caps.

For additional exercises, see the second volume of this book, More Logic-Math Exercises for Young Children.

The Animal Kingdom: Dyslexia Version

Author: Hegeman, Dr. Kathryn T.; Tice, Christopher (Illustrator)

Subjects: Science; Bloom's Taxonomy; Early Learning

Age: 5, 6, 7, 8

Grade: K, 1, 2, 3

ISBN: 978-0-89824-646-9

Order code: 6469

Price: $10.00
Website price: $8.00

The Animal Kingdom: Dyslexia Version Cover

Based on Bloom's Taxonomy, this book is designed to enable children to work independently. It contains ten units—one for each month of the school year—and features the whale, cat, deer, horse, lion, elephant, kangaroo, robin, ladybug, and turtle.

The book contains activity plans and animal record sheets. Each unit also covers such topics as animals' food, habitat, and adaptations. Comparisons are encouraged by a life-span chart, a "My Favorite Animal" sheet, and an "Imagine You Are an Animal" sheet.

The organization of the book is modular, which has several advantages. First, it enables children to succeed in each module, regardless of how they did in a previous module. Second, each module allows children to learn, practice, and expand on different levels of proficiency. Third, the modules allow for more in-depth exploration when a particular animal catches a child's interest. That exploration encourages children to use thinking processes, research skills, and inquiry skills in order to develop science concepts and become more independent learners. 

There is a teacher manual available to accompany the student book.
