Hot Dogs and Hamburgers

When lawyer, Rob Shindler , discovers that his son, Oliver, has difficulty reading, he ignores the situation.  But soon he hears nasty remarks directed at his son, and he knows that Oliver is really quite bright.  Eventually, he decides to learn how to teach literacy to adults in Chicago.  This is the story of how he did it.

He met 'Aunt June Porter', Bible-toting Elvira, motivational speaker Charles, and bad-mouthed Michael along the way.  He grew to love his class and his students, and you probably will too!  This is the kind of book that you miss when you've finished it.  I felt that I'd made a lot of new friends, and I even got teary-eyed at the end.

It's a lovely, well-written book, and I hope that it encourages more people to teach literacy.
