Isabelle Gielen (1980) is speech therapist, writer and mother of three sons. When her eldest son learned to read, she noticed that he liked reading books more than the books that he could already read himself. She wrote Sep and Saar. The train acts weird: a book that stimulates learning to read in the form of an exciting story. Reading pleasure for beginning readers is Isabelle’s passion. She also gives training courses to parents and teachers about this theme. And she gives author lectures about her books.
