Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 1-3- When a boy has a coughing fit while he is playing soccer with his friends, his parents rush him to the hospital where the doctor explains that he has asthma and gives him an inhaler. The doctor's explanation of asthma is accompanied by diagrams of the lungs. The parents drive the child back to the soccer field where one of the other boys, "the fastest runner on the team," reveals that he has asthma as well. The last few pages of the book give suggested precautions to take if one has allergies, how to find out how many kids in one's class have asthma, how to make an inhaler pouch, and guidelines for parents. The easy text, combined with soft, rounded figures in the colorful illustrations, results in a sensitively told story that offers encouragement to children suffering from this condition, complete with helpful advice.-Donna Atmur, Los Angeles Public Library

    A reviewer

    I bought this book hoping it could help my 9 year old son learn more about his asthma so he could understand what asthma is and how it can be controlled. A child similar to his age died during the school year due to asthma which caused my son to become terrified even though my son knows his asthma is very controlled and we take daily medicine prevention as prescribed by the doctor. This book has a very encouraging storyline written to meet a young child's perspective and explains both the experience of the character having his first asthmatic attack and his embarrassment/worry of having asthma and how his friends will treat him. My son, after reading this book and our discussion of it, now feels alot more in control of his asthma knowing the steps he can do to both prevent and handle an asthma attack. He knew these safety precautions and steps anyways, but being able to read it and understand it in book form and on his own level helps him to feel more secure. I definitely recommend this book as it offers more in-depth parental knowledge on asthma triggers, prevention of an attack and what to do to calm down your child so that their attack will lessen.
