Henry Winkler's Book Series
If you know of a 7-12 year old who has experienced learning difficulties, the Hank Zipzer books are a great series of books that they might enjoy. Written by Henry Winkler and Lin Oliver, the books follow a boy, Hank (based on Winkler), who has learning challenges, but is resourceful and always finds a way to figure things out. I really like the tone of the books as well as the main character. I also like that, as a teacher, these books are just as appealing to students who do not have learning challenges and that it can teach typically developing students about how everyone learns differently and sometimes people need a little extra support.
