The SOS File, Betsy Byars, Betsy Duffey & Laurie Myers


The SOS File did not interest me, although it does teach a moral lesson at the end.

In this beginner chapter book, a teacher asks his class to write about a time when they needed an SOS. Each chapter tells of the adventures of each young student. After reading all of the essays, the teacher reads to the class his own SOS file. He reveals that he has overcome dyslexia. The whole class is surprised. The students learned the lesson, “You can do anything if you work hard.”

I do not recommend this book. It is poorly written and offers an awful plot. However, the book does teach a good lesson, and I do appreciate that aspect.
