David doesn't know how he ends up in such "situations". At the time, it just seems like a great idea. His teacher, Mrs. Gorski, has had about enough; he can tell by the way her voice changes when she speaks to him. This time, he believes that he has come up with the best idea yet~ the perfect plan to make everything better.

Professional Reviews

Dr. Susan Baum
“How can you be smart and not learn to read or spell? Read this powerful tale of how
Katy grapples with this paradox while trying to understand people she knows with
dyslexia. Esham’s tale, If You're So Smart How Come You Can't Spell Mississippi?,
will introduce children and adults to the world of creative producers whose difficulties
learning to read and write did not prevent them from accomplishing great things.
It provides hope for children who are bright and creative even if they can’t spell Mississippi.”
Dr. Susan Baum, Professor Emeritus The College of New Rochelle, Gifted Education
Dr. Baum is widely published in the areas of primary-aged gifted students, twice exceptional students, and the social/emotional factors affecting gifted students. Dr. Baum served on the Board of Directors of the National Association for Gifted Students

Dr. Edward Deci
“These books should help children and their parents understand that we all have different skills, abilities, and learning styles. Such differences do not make any one child better or worse than any other; they just make the children different. The books convey respect for all children whatever their differences, and they encourage the children to develop their own unique set of skills.” Dr. Edward L. Deci, University of Rochester Gowen Professor of Psychology Dr. Deci is the author of ten books, including The Psychology of Self Determination, Intrinsic Motivation and Self-Determination in Human Behavior, and Why We Do What We Do

Dr. Carol Tomlinson
“Katie’s dad can’t spell. Max can’t work under time pressure. Carolyn may never master cursive writing and David wiggles. They are typical of many students who struggle with some aspect of school. They are also lucky because each of them finds understanding or acceptance of their particular learning profiles. Whether it’s the realization that famous people have sometimes been “different” learners, a teacher who understands that creativity counts too, or the ability to identify coping strategies, the four students put a human face on what it means to struggle in school-and how essential it is to have partners in persisting for success. Katie, Max, Carolyn, and David are good news for students, parents, and teachers who want to understand what it means to learn outside the traditional lines of school.”
Dr. Carol Tomlinson, University of Virginia
Curry School of Education
Program Coordinator for the Educational Psychology and Gifted Education program. Dr. Tomlinson is the author of twelve books on the topics of differentiated instruction and curriculum. Her books have been translated into nine languages.
