"From magical picture books to engrossing early reader chapter books,
Billy Baldwin Stories will capture the hearts and imaginations of all who read them."
Billy Baldwin was diagnosed with dyslexia at an early age. Through hard work and the support of his family, Billy has faced his challenges with reading and writing head-on and transformed those challenges into creative advantages. Billy's rich imagination and determination to bring his stories to life have helped him develop skills and methods to effectively express his vision.
The theme of all of Billy’s books is the celebration of the underdog. In addition to his creative endeavors, Billy is involved with numerous not-for-profit organizations and activities tied to Dyslexia and conservancy.
