A young girl is excited to take her dog trick-or-treating but she wants them to wear matching costumes. She tries tutus and sheets for ghosts but those don’t work. She is determined to find a matching costume for them and tries clowns and robots but the dog doesn’t like those either. Finally, she has an idea, using her own creativity, and it makes the perfect costume for both of them.
This book is printed in a dyslexic font. Dyslexic font makes letters easier to distinguish, enables readers to read with less effort, and offers a joyful reading experience. Certain fonts are more for aesthetics and can be confusing for those with dyslexia.
This isn’t only a good choice for kids with dyslexia but also offers a chance for adults with dyslexia to read a book aloud to their children.
This book includes word repetition, adorable illustrations of a girl and her dog, and is a sweet Halloween story. MATCHING COSTUMES just won Honorable Mention in this year’s Purple Dragonfly Awards in the “Holiday” category.
