I thought the story was kind of odd. I think it was meant for younger kids. It sounded corny to me. Such as the kangaroo riding and the fact he was inside a video game dream. I don't like the rhyming part. It gets annoying to me.
On the other hand, this book could help kids know what to do if they have allergies. I do think using superhero type video game people could make kids less scared. I felt kind of scared when I found out about my allergies.
I would recommend this book to other kids with allergies. I think it would be good for ages 3-7.
The illustration was actually pretty good. Sometimes I would see over lapping lines but I think it was pretty cute.
I would consider reading another book from this author. Thank you Amazon and to the author for having a free book about kids like me.
This part of the review is from Geoffrey's Mom. I thought the book was really entertaining and funny. Geoffrey tends to be a serious kid so sometimes cheesy things are lost on his rational mind. His 7 year old sister really enjoyed this book as well. I liked the rhyming and simple illustrations.
I loved the way they author made it easy for children to relate to (video games) and made the medications seem like power superhero tools meant to save him. This is actually very true just put in a way children can comprehend and digest.
My son was a bit of a harsh critic but he did sit and read the entire book and did seem to enjoy it. I think maybe he is just embarrassed to admit it because he has a high reading level and this book is very basic.
Overall, I highly recommend to children with allergies and the children in their lives.
His father assures him that he’s not alone and that he, his mom and his doctor are on his team and the team is watching his back. Not quite convinced, James nods off while he’s playing a video game. He wakes in a desert with Super Heroes fighting on his team through drama and trials of allergens.
To be a child with allergies can be frightening and stigmatizing. What I really liked about this book is that it addresses these issues in a way that shows the young child that he or she isn’t alone and can live a normal life with the right “tools”. This is a delightfully illustrated and clever story.
The engaging story-line is a great springboard for discussion as well as a way to foster assurance in kids as they learn to take an active role in their own health-care.
Inspired by a real 9 year old boy's story, this book is a MUST for all families who have children with allergies. It is fun, modern, extremely well written, clever and very inspiring for both kids and parents alike. GREAT graphics (simple but fun) and varying fonts. Encourage your child today! Let them know that with the right equipment (James knows never to go anywhere without the medications in his backpack), they can live a normal life.
