Windward Parent and Student Co-Author Children’s Book About Dyslexia

Congratulations to Windward parent Monica Berg and her daughter Abigail, current Manhattan Lower School grade 4 student, on the publication of their book, The Gift of Being Different.

The book is inspired by 9-year-old Abigail’s journey as a child with dyslexia. 

“The tale is told with humor, authenticity, and a powerful message of celebrating and embracing our differences. Monica and Abigail have written a children’s book that will invite readers to embrace the parts of themselves that feel different. With her writing debut, Abigail is a shining example of what can be done if we embrace what makes us unique and transform it into a superpower.”
