    Fantastic Tool For All Parents To Have!

    Having a child with Asthma, I knew I wanted to jump on this book to review. Watching him go through the difficulty time of trying to catch your breath and you can't, is nearly unbearable on a mom who wants nothing more than to give him a good set of lungs. Hearing him say, help me, mom is sometimes more than I can take. But, with the help of inhalers it's controllable. Sometimes. Sometimes it's still hard. So, when I saw Dr. Shapiro's book, I thought yay!!

    Sitting down and opening this book, I had it finished in one day. I read each page with awe and a better understanding of what children go through, and what, as a parent, I can do to help ease the issues. Through detailed discussions in the book, Dr. Shapiro shows parents who have children affected with breathing issues, and those who don't, what to look for, how to work through it, and the steps to help keep it under control.

    I highly recommend this for every parent out there. No matter whether you have an infant or a teen with breathing issues, this is highly informative and easy to understand. I definitely give this book a 5 Book rating and will keep this on my shelf for further use. Well done, Ms. Shapiro, and THANK YOU for helping this mom understand!!!
