Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3Siri leads an active life that is interrupted periodically by bouts of asthma. She tells readers about her first attack and what she does to control her disorder. Large, well-composed, full-color photographs follow the text closely, showing the child's family, activities, and medical treatments. The first-person text flows naturally. An appendix answers common questions and offers a list of resources and books. A nice addition to place alongside William and Vivian Ostrow's All about Asthma (Albert Whitman, 1989).Martha Gordon, formerly at South Salem Library, NY
Stephanie Zvirin
With his daughter, Siri, as the engaging, optimistic voice of the text, Carter, the author of several books for older children and teens, tackles a condition that impacts his family. Siri simply and clearly explains what happens when you have asthma, what it feels like to have an attack ("like this great big animal--a tiger, maybe--was sitting on my chest" ), and what can be done to manage the condition, by doctors and parents, and eventually, by children themselves. Some of the photos are obvious setups, and a few have an unattractive yellowish cast, but most are unaffected, homey scenes of Siri at home and at school, sometimes being given medication by her parents, sometimes playing actively with her brother, her classmates, and her friends. The balance between basic information and personal story seems just right for the intended age group. One of the better recent books on a subject that has definitely begun to gain the attention of children's writers.
