Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

I give a big grin, say "no thank you" and then I am sure not to make a big deal. We've all got something, you see, and there are more kids like me, who can't eat somethings with their meal.

The story and illustrations are delightful.

I think this book has helped the other children understand also and not force them to share lunchs and snacks.

I bought this book because my nephew has celiac and I wanted to help my daughter (age 4) understand why her young cousin can't eat the same gluten-based products as her (e.g., Cheerios). The story and illustrations are delightful. She likes me to read it to her at bedtime but I didn't know if she really comprehended the concept of gluten-free until we were making a snack one day and she picked up the Goldfish crackers and said, "Zack can't eat this because it has wheat in it -- do they make these whithout wheat?" I highly recommend this book for young children with celiac and their families.

My son has Celic disease, and this book really helped him laugh at himself. It also helped him understand his life can be normal without wheat. The pictures in this book were really funny and made him laugh.

This book has been great reading for my 7 y.o. daughter who was diagnosed with Celiac last year. She has even shared the book with her friends so they can learn about Celiac too. We hope Karen Fine continues to write inspirational books like this.

"How I Eat Without Wheat" is an absolutely wonderful approach to helping young children with gluten intolerance understand why they have to eat differently than other children. I only wish it had been available for my daughter's family when my grandson was diagnosed with celiac disease at age two! Karen Fine obviously has a great deal of insight into the issues presented by celiac disease and I hope this book will reach every family dealing with this condtion.

I bought this book as my children and I are gluten intolerant. It can be hard for small children to understand that they can't eat all the food they want at a birthday party etc. And also harder for their friends and class mates to understand. My 4 year old loves this book so much he wants me to read it to him every week. 'It's a book just about me' he says. I also gave a copy to my sons teachers so it could be shared at school and spoken about. Before this we had a case where one of my boys ate something because he was being pressurized by some children in his class. He was so ill that day I had to take him home from school. I think this book has helped the other children understand also and not force them to share lunchs and snacks. The authors website and blog is also great. [...]
