Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Asthma is described in terms a child can grasp in two-page sections with appropriate titles, such as "What is asthma?" and "How to treat asthma." The text is easily understood and is supported by pictures that closely match the words. The ideas conveyed are very simple and would be informative for very young children only. Children with asthma are shown in realistic photographs that are carefully-chosen to represent both genders and a variety of racial groups. In addition to supporting the text, the photographs and text backgrounds use lively colors, brightening the pages in spite of the seriousness of the topic. The most interesting section describes how to make a breathing apparatus to check lung capacity. The instructions are laboriously clear, and the simple construction results in a tool that everyone in the family will want to try. In addition to this supplementary material, there is a glossary and an index. This title is part of the "First Facts Health Matters" series from Capstone Press, which is designed for young children. 2006, Capstone Press, Ages 4 to 6.
