This is a beautifully written, heart-warming story. The author has done a superb job of conveying some core fundamental life principals and mixed it with adventure and humor. I wish that when I was a younger I had read these kinds of stories that made me recognize and appreciate my own unique abilities and how they they showed up in my life. I had to learn those later on in life.
This story is all about the true appreciation of our own essence. What a wonderful little gem of a story that is big on impact. I would absolutely recommend this book to both adults and young adults. There's something in all of us that we can recognized in the characters. Bravo and well done!!
Read this book because it is fun. Admire it because it is captivating. Love it because it conquers monsters both in its pages and in our imaginations. I cannot applaud loudly enough for a story that makes our differences our strengths.
I wish Ann V. Wixon could take on the entire pantheon of quirky conditions and out-of-the-norm characteristics that get dealt to just about every one of us. Whoever we are, we all want to know we can win. DEVON IN DISNEY tells us just that.
This book is a fun and lively read anyone from age 8 to 80 will enjoy. It leads the reader through an engaging story which, in its own subtle way, helps a young person who may be dealing with dyslexia realize he or she possesses amazing superpowers.
This book was truly a labor of love for the author, who recognized the lack of protagonists in the book world to whom young adults with learning differences can relate (as well as their family members and friends). A very well-written book that I highly recommend!
I have struggled with a learning disorder my whole life and after years of the stigma associated with it, I found a way, as an adult, to use it to my advantage.
With Devon in Disney, Ann Wixon has given kids a way to feel empowered instead of embarrassed. And she has done it with a charming tale of self awareness in a style tailored for the very children she's writing about.
This book is not just for those with dyslexia, but for anyone who's been made to feel that they don't quite "fit in."
A super fun read that will help any child realize that sometimes the thing that makes you different is really the thing that makes you special! I can’t wait to share this with my daughter!
