    A must-read for anyone who wishes to be supportive of families dealing with Celiac Disease

    As a grandparent of a newly-diagnosed Celiac toddler, I found this book invaluable. If one has any inclination at all of minimizing the seriousness or ramifications of Celiac Disease, this will enlighten that person. Hidden sources of gluten, unintentional cross-contamination of other food products, the added burden of grocery-shopping for gluten-free products, near impossibility of finding gluten-free food at restaurants, difficulty in educating family and friends as to the importance of being diligent in guarding against exposing your child to gluten, and more - this book contains it all. However, it does not merely dwell on the difficulties of raising a Celiac child. It is also full of ideas to help make the lives of the Celiac child and his parents more normal, healthy and manageable. It is good to reread parts of the book periodically, to remind oneself of the issues faced by families affected by this disease.

    A must have guide for every celiac family

    As the mother of a 6 1/2 year old boy who was diagnosed with celiac disease at age 3, I can honestly say that this book covers everything a family should know about raising a gluten free child. I laughed at many of the anecdotes because I have been there...I know the look on the face of the server when I order a burger, without the bun. I held back tears at many passages because I have been there...I know the feeling of loss that comes immediately after the diagnosis. I wondered if my child would still be able to lead a 'normal' life when faced with birthday cupcakes and post-game pizza parties. This book ought to be in every single pediatric GI doctor's office and be handed to every single family that walks out of that office with the news that the child has celiac disease.
