Little Jack Thomson's Magnificent Brain
Kelley Donner, author
Jack Thomson, a gifted little boy who dreams of flying rockets to Neptune and building trains between planets, is unaware that he has a magnificent brain. He thinks he is stupid and slow because he can’t read and write like everyone else. After one awful day at school, Jack’s mother comforts him by telling him some inspiring stories of history’s greatest minds and how many of them overcame learning disabilities. As Jack listens, his spirits lift as he recognizes that someday he, too, can do something magnificent.
