As a teacher, I say, "Hurrah!" What a wonderful thing it is to find out the true story and spare a child under stress unnecessary grief!!

Nicely done (but switched streams -you said hat,earlier, and then book -minor fix :)

With my nephew finally being diagnosed dyslexic (after the teacher last year ignored my sister telling them he was, since his father is and other relatives) it's a problem in the schools that too often goes ignored.

it's not always that easy to discover, I am dyslexic (only with numbers) and it took several years to figure it out - good story

Awwww, poor little guy! You did a great job of creating sympathetic characters.

Well done. I was nicely surprised when the boy turned out to be connected to the reason Daphne was called to the school. Well written within the confines of 750 words.

Such a heart warming story and so well told! You've done a great job of pulling your reader into this little drama! I really enjoyed it!!

Wow, this is very well written. A real situation, often seeming minor to adults, was handled with compassion AND love for truth. If only this happened more frequently in elementary schools...good job.

Good dialogue and characters! And a great way to get across a message. Easy to read, understand and emphathize with the child. Good job!
