From Understanding Our Differences
The Leader in Disability Awareness Education
An Author Conversation and Book Signing
Tuesday Evening, October 20, 2015
This fall, UOD's popular book event will feature Fish in a Tree, and author Lynda Mullaly Hunt. This highly praised, middle grade children's book has a learning disability theme.
Every time Ally lands in a new school, she is able to hide her inability to read by creating clever yet disruptive distractions.
But with the help of a new teacher, she discovers that there's a lot more to her -- and to everyone -- than a label, and that great minds don't always think alike.
Recommended for grades 4-6.

She is a former teacher who lives in Connecticut with her family and pets.
"Filled with a delightful range of quirky characters and told with heart, Fish in a Tree explores themes of family, friendship, and courage in its many forms." -- BOOKLIST, Starred Review
