This is the first book I've found that is perfect for both of their levels (4 and 8) and embraces that a way of eating is just one of many, many things that make you special. It shows Emily feeling sad because she's left out, or "different" and it shows her triumphing "Eating gluten free is healthy for me!" Rather than focusing on one small aspect (diagnosis, or trouble at school) or trying to explain the disease, this book just tells about a normal little girl, leading a normal life and the few things she has to do different because she has to be "Gluten Free".
One note, it does mention "diarrhea" which may make some kids giggle, or others embarressed to read in a group setting. This is only one page, attention is not drawn to it. The tests that Emily goes through for diagnosis are not described in detail.
We borrowed it from the library, have read it over and over and will be purchasing it. Thank you to the author for filling a much needed void in children's literature.
