Meet the winner of the Dover Publications contest – Terri Mehl
My legal name is Catherine but I have always gone by my nickname, Terri.
I am the retired director of Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes, Sacramento. Having spent many years helping children and adults with reading and comprehension challenges, I am a strong advocate of helping everyone learn to love reading, whatever their challenges may be. Now I get to share that with Ella and Henry! Lucky me!

Experts agree, learning to read early and reading often is the key to academic success for children. Here is another article about how you as a grandparent can help develop a love of reading in your grandchildren.
According to Shweta Iyer, “Helping children overcome reading disabilities early on will show positive effects on their IQ as they grow up.
Most parents nurture a secret desire that their child will grow up to be an Einstein or a Rosalind Franklin. While the market is flooded with a number of commercial products like DVDs, books, games, etc., that claim to boost a child’s intelligence, new research shows improving a most basic skill in child years will lead to the development of higher IQ later on in life: reading.
“Since reading is an ability that can be improved, our findings have implications for reading instruction,” Stuart J. Ritchie, lead author of the study, said in a press release. “Early remediation of reading problems might aid not only the growth of literacy but also more general cognitive abilities that are of critical importance across the lifespan.” Ritchie and his colleagues from the University of Edinburgh and King’s College London conducted this research, published in the journal Child Development.”
