Did you know that May is Celiac Awareness Month? It is a great time to learn more about this disease that affects approximately 1 in 133 people in the United States. A great resource of information on celiac can be found at www.celiac-disease.com.
If you have a child with celiac disease, you may already know how difficult it can be to explain his/her special diet to others.
“Adam’s Gluten Free Surprise” by Debbie Simpson is written in easy to understand kid language that is great for both children and adults to read.
From Debbie’s website:
“Adam’s Gluten Free Surprise is about the acceptance that is required by the child with a special diet and of the understanding required by those who are important parts of his or her life. We live in a world where the word “diet” is synonymous with “cheat a little”. It’s difficult for many to understand that this is a diet that requires 100% adherence. And with this comes an emotional need to be understood, for whoever the person requiring this strict diet may be, whether one or one hundred years of age.
Follow Adam through the first six months of a new school year after discovering he has celiac.
Adam offers children with food allergies and intolerances a positive role model as he faces classroom celebrations with a smile and “That’s o.k.!”. But this book isn’t just for kids. Adam is also a great resource for teachers, family, babysitters and friends.”
Author Debbie Simpson is a mom, grandma, Early Childhood teacher, Birth – Three parent educator, and gluten free since September 2000. She writes a wonderful blog, sharing recipes, celiac information and her personal insights and observations about living gluten free.
“Adam’s Gluten Free Surprise” is a heartwarming, fun to read story about a young boy facing the challenges of following his gluten free diet at school. This book really struck a chord with me and I may have even shed a few happy tears while reading it. Everyone just wants to be understood, right?
“Adam’s Gluten Free Surprise” would be a great gift for a family member, friend, teacher, school library or church school.
You can purchase “Adam’s Gluten Free Surprise” easily on Debbie’s website HERE. It’s even available in a Kindle edition!
