Another Patricia Polacco because it felt like a classic. I think this represents many students feelings of frustration really well, and shows a teacher who wants the best for his students. Overall, I think this book is helpful, and I would want to be sure that students feel strong reading this, so they can also understand the main ideas. ( )

I really enjoyed this book. I loved how even though the main character struggled with reading and writing, she was extremely talented in painting and drawing. The story also showed how when you have a teacher that supports and encourages you, you can accomplish your goals. ( )

Goodreads Review:
The real-life, classic story of a dyslexic girl and the teacher who would not let her fail. A perfect gift for teachers and for reading students of any age.

Patricia Polacco is now one of America's most loved children's book creators, but once upon a time, she was a little girl named Trisha starting school. Trisha could paint and draw beautifully, but when she looked at words on a page, all she could see was jumble. It took a very special teacher to recognize little Trisha's dyslexia: Mr. Falker, who encouraged her to overcome her reading disability. Patricia Polacco will never forget him, and neither will we.This inspiring story is available in a deluxe slipcased edition, complete with a personal letter to readers from Patricia Polacco herself. Thank You, Mr. Falker will make a beautiful gift for the special child who needs encouragement or any special teacher who has made a difference in the child's life.

This is a touching story of a teacher, Mr. Falker, who does not give up on his student who has dyslexia. Mr. Falker is a great example of not giving up on someone who needs you most. This story would be a great read aloud and a great book for a discussion on not giving up on yourself. ( )

CCBC (Cooperative Children's Book Center Choices, 1998)
Before she started school, Trisha looked forward to learning how to read more than anything else. But in first grade, when all her classmates are learning to read, she finds that she can't. Each year her problem gets worse and worse and, although she struggles to keep it a secret, she begins to think of herself as stupid and ugly. It isn't until Trisha is in fifth grade that she has a teacher who discovers her secret and helps her learn to read. An autobiographical story shows the frustration and determination of child who's different, and offers a tender portrait of the real-life teacher who made a difference in her life. CCBC categories: Picture Books for Older Children. 1998, Philomel, 40 pages, $16.99. Ages 6-10.

Hazel Rochman (Booklist, May 1, 1998 (Vol. 94, No. 17))
Like many of Polacco's picture-book stories, this one is autobiographical. Who would believe that this gifted storyteller had started off with a serious learning disability? From kindergarten on, Trisha gets attention because she can draw; but she hides the fact that she can't read--all she sees on the page are "wiggling shapes" --until her fifth-grade teacher discovers Trisha's problem, gets her special help, and sets her free. "That little girl was me," Polacco says in a final note. As always she tells the story with intense emotion: no understatement here; reading is "torture." The big line-and-watercolor illustrations are bright with color and theatrical gesture, expressing the child's happiness with her grandparents in a family of readers, her fear and loneliness in the classroom ("she hated hated hated school"), her anguish when the kids jeer at her in the schoolyard, and her joy when finally she reads the words on the page ("she was happy, so very happy"). Trisha isn't idealized: we see her messy and desperate, poring over her books. This will encourage the child who feels like a failure and the teacher who cares. Category: For the Young. 1998, Putnam/Philomel, $15.99. Ages 5-9.

The honey is sweet, and so is knowledge, but knowledge is like the bee who made the honey, it has to be chased through the pages of a book!
