Children's Literature - Carlee Hallman
Dylan has epilepsy but hopes to go to New York with his class. Unfortunately the week before the trip he has a major seizure and is in the hospital. He is given a new drug and hopes that it will work. His class welcomes him back with a banner and cards. But some of the kids treat him differently now. His folks decide he can go on the trip if his dad drives him there and stays with him. At the back various chronic illnesses are described such as asthma, epilepsy, lupus, diabetes, and allergies. Special definitions appear in green boxes: "Chronic means that something is permanent or recurs often." Many kids with a chronic disease can do well in a regular classroom. In order to qualify for special education a person is evaluated by specialists. They devise a program that suits the person's needs. An introduction at the front for teachers encourages further conversation on these issues. Readers will become more comfortable with various disabilities. This book is very well done.
