I was able to read this book a month or so ago and was really impressed with it. Not only are the pictures attractive to the adult eye, but to a young child’s eye, too. I’ve shared this book with my daughter (8) and God daughter (3) and they both loved the little girl (and her curly hair). Inspiration for the little girl in the book came from Chalmers’ own daughter, Morgan, who was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2008. The book helps explain what Celiac Disease is in terms that are easy for a younger child to understand. Topics covered in the book include foods that are safe for the gluten-free diet and ideas about what to do when your child needs to avoid gluten-containing food away from home and bring along something safe to eat. The book ends by talking about how eating is such a small part of life and concentrating on all of the fun things there are to do in life helps us keep a positive attitude. I love all of the positivity radiating from this book! It is easy to get discouraged with a new diagnosis, especially one that involves a major diet change like the gluten-free diet. Explaining all of the details can be made just a little easier (and fun) with a book like “Mommy, What is Celiac Disease?”
