Meet Our Superhero: Colt Davidson
Colt Davidson’s momma thinks he’s pretty cool, and even though she’s biased, you’ll likely agree that the third-grader ranks high on any likeability scale. He’s a wrestler and a football player who might love keeping track of stats even more than he does the thrill of the competition. Like a lot of younger brothers, he looks up to his older brother, Wyatt, although sometimes it’s best not to point that out to either of them. Colt’s family appreciates his sense of humor more and more as he grows up and they claim his dance moves aren’t too shabby either. Having dyslexia used to be frustrating for Colt—and some days it still is—but these days he’s also encouraged by the opportunities it’s brought into his life to help others.

About the Font: Dyslexie
For those with dyslexia, reading is as appealing as cuddling a porcupine. In other words, it’s frustrating, discouraging, and on the worst days, downright nerve-wracking. Until they receive support, dyslexics will avoid it as much as possible.
And that’s why we’ve used the Dyslexie font throughout the book. You can test it out for yourself by clicking the blue “d” in the lower right corner. It’s specially designed to make reading easier for the dyslexic mind. It makes reading accessible, and dare we say it? Enjoyable. Click here to read more (fascinating!) details about Dyslexie.
