This was a cute story about coping and being able to problem solve. I liked how the mqain character used the strategy of memorizing. It would be nice to "see" how Robby sees; I think it would help kids understand dyslexia more.

Thank you NetGalley and Empower Publishing for accepting my request to read and review Robby the Dyslexic Taxi. 

Cute.  Knowing the author was dyslexic and learned as a child to use art allowed me to make sense of a dyslexic car.  The airport adventure started out with me having mixed emotions, and then the clever author had the taxi follow signs.  I actually was a little embarrassed I didn't see it coming.

I liked also that Robby's employer kindly worked with him.  

The illustrations are bright and somewhat primitive, but effective.  

I would gift this, and suggest it to babysitters.

I really liked the idea behind this book and I thought that the story was really good

I loved that the star of the story was dyslexic and that the book showed his positives from having that and the thanks he got after he was asked to take a different route 

I can see this being a bit hit with children that have been diagnosed, or are pending a diagnosis.  It is about time that there were more books released like this to give them a voice too

The illustrations were fine, but they didn’t really set the world on fire and I would have preferred slightly different ones that were brighter but I can see others liking them

It is 4 stars from me for this one, highly recommended!

This was a cute book that shines the spotlight on dyslexia. 

It was a cute short story. 

I wanted a little more out of it. Like maybe explaining it more so that children can understand dyslexia better. I feel that the book did a good job of showing the can taking its time to calmly figure out a strategy for overcoming a new route but it would’ve been nice to have the book explain the condition itself a little more.
