Hattie Pearl Click Click


Written by Emily Hearn and Illustrated by Yvonne Cathcart


This book is especially appropriate for children having difficulty with reading. Today, Janey is an adult writer who uses a computer to help children who also like to write. But when she was a girl, Janey had a problem learning to read. The only person who seemed to recognize her difficulty was the effervescent Hattie Pearl. Told in flashback and set in the 1940s.
