The Owl in the Old Oak Tree and Little Squirrel Gray (Hardcover)
Little squirrel Gray loves playing with his sisters and friends in the oak wood. However, after struggling at school Gray feels misunderstood, stupid, and alone. On the day Gray decides not to go to school he meets a wise owl who helps him to understand his challenges and discover a few hidden strengths along the way. There are around 870,000 school children in the UK with dyslexia many of whom go undiagnosed. That's potentially 870,000 children feeling like little Gray. I vividly remember those feelings in school and sometimes still experience them today in my adult life. I was lucky and have had my own versions of the wise owl, encouraging me throughout my journey. I wrote this book because I wish that all those children have their own wise owl in their lives; to help them understand their gift and see its strengths, to feel understood, smart, and supported. We likely all have a child in our lives that is dyslexic and needs support. Be someone's owl, there can never be too many.
