Patricia Polacco eBooks

Patricia Polacco had an interesting start to her life considering that she would later in her become a well-known author. Patricia suffered from dyslexia as a child and couldn’t read. It wasn’t until she was diagnosed at fourteen that things started to turn around for her. Before that she was a timid and quiet child that rarely spoke up in class.

Polacco grew up in Michigan until her grandmother died in 1949. Her grandmother was a very influential part of her life and makes appearances in one form or another in many of her books.  After her grandmother died, Polacco and her brother moved to Florida with their mother. Her parents divorced when she was three. This meant that her summers were spent playing in the open fields of a Southern Michigan farm.

Eventually Polacco, with her mother and brother, moved to Oakland, California. This was a very influential time for her. A teacher at her junior high school realized after some time that she could not read. On further questioning, the teacher realized that she had dyslexia and sought to get her the help she needed. In a way to repay her teacher she wrote one of her books entitled, Thank You, Mr. Falker. This was a book that dealt with many of the situations that she had gone through as a child, most notably the dyslexia.

Polacco did not start to write until the age of 41. She still continues to write about life stories from the city that she grew up in Michigan.
