What happens when neuroscience meets Dr. Seuss?  Hosted by Henry Winkler, who has had his own struggles with reading, Reading and the Brain explores how brain scientists are working to solve the puzzle of why some children struggle to read and others don’t. Startling new research shows the answer may lie in how a child’s brain is wired from birth.

This program is the eighth episode of Launching Young Readers, WETA’s award–winning series of innovative half-hour programs about how children learn to read, why so many struggle, and what we can do to help.
