Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-These inviting, colorful books will attract students who need a clear, readable introduction to some of the conditions that affect them or their classmates. Informative chapters address causes, diagnoses, treatments, ways to help the afflicted, and what to expect, and each title includes inspiring success stories about such individuals as Olympic gold medalist Jackie Joyner-Kersee (Asthma), artist Richard Wawro (Autism), and the Reverend Jesse Jackson (Sickle Cell). Covers open to glossy, well-laid-out pages; boldfaced vocabulary words; sidebars; and numerous color photos. The references, glossaries, and indexes are limited but useful. With these titles, most kids will feel well equipped and, more importantly, possibly even more comfortable in approaching and befriending those whose lives are challenged.-Mary R.
