About Cigdem Knebel

When Cigdem Knebel struggled to find decodable chapter books that her 7-year-old dyslexic son could painlessly read, she began to write for him. Cigdem believes that all children love to read. This is no different for children with dyslexia; they just need to find that right book. Cigdem is the founder of Simple Words Books, which are the just right books for dyslexic children, early & reluctant readers.

This makes Simple Words Books ideal for improving fluency and boosting readers' confidence. You can visit to download a FREE Decodable Phonics Workbook.
