"I've been blessed with two healthy boys and dyslexia affects a lot of young kids in NZ. We are all born with two hands, one to receive and one to give back and this is my way of giving back to a worthy cause." - Michael Campbell, professional golfer.
“We’re excited all profits from sales of Parenting by the Stars will be going to Dyslexia Foundation of New Zealand. We hope funds raised will help the foundation continue its important work helping New Zealand children with different learning preferences get an equal start in life, which in turn supports schools, families and society in general.” - Parenting by the Stars editors Anne Marie Spicer and Paula Trubshaw
