SACRAMENTO, Calif (AP) — California Gov. Gavin Newsom has written a children's book about dyslexia.
The book is titled “Ben & Emma's Big Hit” and comes out on Tuesday.
It tells the story of a young boy who uses baseball to cope with his dyslexia along with help from a caring teacher and a friend.
The book is a semi-autobiographical account of Newsom's childhood.
Newsom learned he had dyslexia when he was 10.
He says it made him resilient and taught him to develop other strengths, including a strong memory.
Newsom was inspired to write the book after watching some of his four children share some of the struggles he had.
