With so many children being diagnosed with Celiac Disease, there’s got to be that very painful moment when parents have to explain what it means to not be able to eat gluten and how important it is in order to stay healthy.
As a former elementary school teacher, I know the power of using stories to teach. If I wanted to teach self-esteem, I reached for I’m Gonna Like Me by Jamie Lee Curtis. Or if I wanted to instill a love of poetry, I read my students Love That Dog by Sharon Creech.
Now there’s a book parents and teachers can reach for to teach children about Celiac Disease.
Katie Chalmers, Celiac mom & author/illustrator, recently released Mommy, What is Celiac Disease? It’s a sweet, loving conversation between a mom and daughter that explains the disease and treatment on a child’s level. Katie goes into detail about what happens when someone with Celiac eats gluten and talks about all the great foods that can be eaten on a gluten-free diet.
This is the perfect gift for any child with Celiac disease, for teachers, and school nurses. I would even give a copy to the family pediatrician. Mommy, What is Celiac Disease? is available for purchase at KatieChalmers.com.
And, to celebrate the holidays Katie is giving away her 10 of her books along with a fabulous gift package.
