My thoughts on this book...



Mommy, What is Celiac Disease? is a unique children's book that thoughtfully explains Celiac Disease to a newly diagnosed child. Author Katie Chalmers has created a gem of a book that I feel would be useful on the shelf of every Celiac child, GI doctor, public and school library, and school classroom. Katie Chalmers wrote this book for her young daughter with Celiac disease, which undoubtedly accounts for the loving tone in which this book is presented.

My own young daughter was diagnosed with Celiac Disease three years ago and already has a comprehensive understanding of Celiac Disease, but we still found this book engaging and extremely enjoyable.  I would have loved to have read this to her when she was newly diagnosed, as I feel it explains Celiac Disease more thoroughly to a child than other books of this type that we have read.  We both especially like the illustrations, which were colorful and married well with the story.

I highly recommend this book!

  59. I am following publicly and I would give this gift to my 8 year old son who is a celiac. We are starting a GF Kids play group in our idea. It was his idea so he could meet other kids like him.

  60. I follow you publically through Yahoo as sageandquinnsmommy. If I win I will give this prize package to my 5 year old son, Quinn, who was just diagnosed with celiac disease this summer.
    Thanks so much!

  61. I am following Gluten Free Taste of Home PUBLICLY through google and if I win this it will be given to my 8yr old daughter Kendall. She has had celiac since she was 2. It would be such a blessing to us since she doesn't get treats that often...they are just too expensive. Thanks so much and may God bless your Christmas and new year!

  63. I tried to follow you publicly via google friend connect using my yahoo id, but it wouldn't accept it. I don't know how else to do it since I don't have a "google" account. I clicked "like" for both of your facebook accounts...does that count? :( My daughter, 8 years old, has Celiac disease and is the only one in our family with this condition so she often feels left out. I would love to give her this giveaway pack and make her feel super special!
