Last year in first grade, we used this book given to us by our Neurologist to teach my daughter and her class about her newly diagnosed seizures. It was most helpful and well received by all. I highly recommend this book.

I think the price was too high for the information that the book offered. It was a short book for $9.95 plus shipping, so I feel like I didn't get my money's worth. I bought the book to share with my daughters classmates at school & felt it was made for younger children, maybe 1st or 2nd grade students. My daughter has a seizure disorder & is in 3rd grade. Hope this helps

We bought this book for our 2 yr old & her cousins & future playmates. When we read it to her the first time, she was completely absorbed; more so than with any book we've read her to date, and she's already a bookworm. She wanted it read twice more. She calls it the "essilessy" book & knows its about another kid who has seizures. Even if she has no idea what the rest of the information in the book means, she knows that the girl in the story has seizures, too. This book very obviously means something to her, even at such a young age, so it is well worth whatever we paid for it. I would replace it again and again at any cost for the value it has to my daughter.

I recommend it for use at home or with any group up through the elementary, maybe middle school, years that a child with epilepsy belongs to. Even just for use for parents to get an idea how to explain epilepsy and living with it to others using simple language and explanations. This children's book is an excellent addition to a family's epilepsy resource library.

This was an excellent book for my 7 year old daughter, I lent it to her Grade 2 teacher to read to the class which gave the kids a better understanding of what she goes through on a day to day basis, it was also very comforting for me to know that there are books out there made for young children, she was able to read it herself and understand that she is not alone. Brilliant!!!!!

This is a fantastic book for 2nd grade and up. A little over the heads of kindergarten and first grade, I think. We bought one for our school library, one for our child's classroom and one for our home! Great tool for dispelling fear and educating others about Epilepsy!

I had high hopes, and had hoped to send this book to my recently diagnosed daughter's first grade class. I started reading, and soon realized that wouldn't be happening. The idea of the book is fantastic, and it did have some good things. Fun imagery, simple phrasing easy for kids to understand, and an emphasis on how epilepsy doesn't make you weird. But they tried to cover the more "common" types of epilepsy, but weren't able to adequately cover any of them. If I were a child, unfamiliar with the disease, I know I would be more overwhelmed and scared than anything. If I were to mark the specific pages that relate to my daughter, with the idea that I don't want to overwhelm the kids, I think it would end up still being scary because of the lack of information.
