Proust and the Squid: The Story and Science of the Reading Brain by Maryanne Wolf
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A most excellent and interesting book about what a reading brain is like, how we learn to read and what it does for us. Also lots of insight into how children need to read and be read to and the disadvantages when we don’t. Lots of insight into theories about dyslexia which I found very helpful and educational.

I love this book; I have a son with dyslexia, and it really helped me think about the issues.
I have some suspicions about one of mine as well and found this book extremely helpful and enlightening. :-)
