4.0 out of 5 stars Good Book for Younger Children, January 9, 2012
This review is from: Eating Gluten-Free with Emily: A Story for Children with Celiac Disease (Paperback)
I checked out this book and "The GF Kid: A Celiac Disease Survival Guide" at the library, looking for a book to help reinforce to my daughter what she can/cannot eat now that we know we're very gluten sensitive; my daughter is 6, but relates more like an 8 year old. I was also hoping to find something to share with her class and with her friends' parents so well meaning adults quit telling her that "a little bit is okay".

My daughter far preferred "The GF Kid" to this book. This one was okay, but very simple, not as much fun, and not as informative. I'd start with this book if your target audience is preschool through perhaps 1st grade, as it's a nice children's book that lets them know others have the same diet they do. Older kids with gluten sensitivity or celiac disease will get much more out of The GF Kid, since it is not only more fun to read, but provides much more information about what they can and cannot and how to research new products to see if they are safe. I'm buying The GF Kid to have as a reference for my 6 & 12 year olds, and to send to friends' houses to help the parents understand their restrictions.

I will probably take this book, Eating Gluten-Free With Emily, in to my daughter's 2nd grade class, as I think the simple format may work better for reading to a group that age.
