Description

When Adam started kindergarten, the teacher wanted him to learn about letters. But p looked like q, and b looked like d. Adam would rather color or mold clay. In first grade, his teacher wanted him to put the letters into words so he could read. That was the beginning of the Alphabet War. Was looked like saw, and there looked like then. Almost everyone else in his class was learning to read, but Adam was fighting a war against letters. In second grade, he had to learn to spell, which was also impossible. Now he was so frustrated he got into trouble and had to go to the principal's office. At last, in third grade, he got the right kind of help. Slowly he began to do better. During fourth grade, he learned that he was smart in other things. That gave him the confidence to take chances with reading. One day he found himself reading a book all by himself!
