Overview

Inspired by the true life experiences of Henry Winkler, whose undiagnosed dyslexia made him a classic childhood underachiever, the Hank Zipzer series is about the high-spirited and funny adventures of a boy with learning differences.

It's science project time in Ms. Adolf's class. This is good news and bad news for Hank-he loves science, but he hates the report part. So Hank turns to TV to take his mind off things. But when the program directory scrolls by too quickly for Hank to know what's on, he decides to take apart the cable box to try to slow down the crawl. Great! Now Hank has found the perfect science project! But what he wasn't counting on was his sister's pet iguana laying eighteen eggs in the disassembled cable box. How is Hank going to get out of this one?

Illustrated by Carol Heyer.

This is a good example of a realistic fiction book. It is a true depiction of present day life. Including exceptionalities in a book is difficult, but this is a humorous way for students to understand the topic. It teaches about a specific lifestyle that they wouldn't understand, but now they can without having to live it. The main character in this book is round and dynamic. We learn a lot about Hank through the course of the novel. He also changes from the beginning to the end as he learns a very important lesson about honesty. I would use this book for intermediate of middle school students. There is no type of media used.

I have used Winkler's series based on his own school & life experiences with my dyslexic students for years now. It is amazing to see students relate to Hank (Henry) & find motivation to read as they gain valuable knowledge about learning differences! This continues to be a favorite among the language tutors in my school!!!
