From the Publisher

As a publisher of specialized books for the gluten-free community, I'm delighted to publish Nancy Falin's book, Gluten-Free Friends. The book was originally Falini's masters thesis, and she used concepts from the book very successfully with her patients for years before it was finally published in 2003 by my company, Savory Palate Press. The book is timely given recent research that 2.2 million Americans have celiac disease....more than those with Parkinson's...or multiple sclerosis...or Crohn's. A portion of the profits from this book are donated to research on celiac disease.

Format: Paperback
This activity book has been wonderful in helping my son learn more about celiac disease. At 5, he enjoyed learning what happens 'on the inside' when he eats gluten. At almost 8, he likes to help choose his own foods, and we use the book as an educational tool for teaching about safe, and healthy foods. Nancy Falini has done an excellent job tailoring the book for different age groups. It is a great resource book for the kids!!

Gluten Free Friends: An Activity Book for Kids is an extremely well written book. It is an advanced coloring book and works well for varied levels of learning.

The coloring pages are very well illustrated and resemble real life pictures, which young children love.

This book also includes differentiated teaching lessons and activities for the older child and provides a guide for parents and care givers to learn from and help guide the child/children with. The activities are practical and really get to the heart of the matter: children need to feel empowered and in control and through reading the book and doing the activities, children gain control over celiac disease. A positive way to learn for both child and parent or care giver. A definite book for your library, especially after it has been covered front to back. My family refers to it a lot!

This has really helped my daughter ( age 5 ) understand Celiac. I wish we had this when she was diagnosed two years ago. This has been a great study on what foods to eat, and how her body reacts to both gluten, and gluten free foods. Some of this is more advanced, but it's a great study to use over and over again. This is a must have book!!!

My daughter has Celiac Disease and is in 3rd grade (she was diagnosed 2 years ago). She has a great and supportive school, teacher and classroom. However, many of the kids think her food is "weird" (rice rolls, hummus, fruit and vegetables -- go figure). My daughter and I made a presentation in front of her class and used many of the pages of this book to explain what Celiac Disease is and why we need to be careful with what she eats. My daughter loves the book -- it is easy to follow and explains exactly what is happening inside her body, what she can/can't eat, how it makes her feel to eat the wrong foods etc. She can use it at home with her friends and family. I would recommend this to any family who has young children just been diagnosed or is living with Celiac disease.
