Cigdem Knebel

When Cigdem Knebel struggled to find high interest and decodable chapter books for her 7 year-old dyslexic son, she began to write them herself. As the founder of Simple Words Books, her mission is to help young dyslexics and reluctant readers with fluency, comprehension, and most importantly, reading-confidence. She accomplishes this by publishing fiction books and comprehension and decodable phonics focused workbooks that help young readers with dyslexia develop their literacy skills. Cigdem believes that all kids love to read—including children with dyslexia. They just need to find the right books to enable them to have fun and find their own way to build literacy skills and achieve success!
