Alfie's Attack!: The Story of a Fish with Asthma by David Bohline, Kelly Hopkins

Why does a children's book about asthma have a fish as the main character? Partly because trying to breath during an asthma flare-up can seem like your lungs are full of water. Partly because a fish out of water does a good job of showing how distressing it is to have trouble breathing. But mainly because this fish tale has become a powerful tool for teaching asthmatic children how to prepare for, and react to, an asthma attack.

Asthma is a serious condition which requires ongoing medical attention and, in severe cases, emergency care and treatment. As with all such conditions, information is the key — knowing what it is, what to expect, and how to respond.

Let Alfie's story arm your child with the knowledge and confidence to manage asthma effectively.

About the Author

Dr. David Bohline has been working in the field of psychology for over thirty years. His comments:

"In the complex field of human behavior, there seems very little which can be agreed upon, and actually quite a bit which is downright contentious. (As a profession, psychologists are known for circling their wagons, then shooting inward.)

"One rare point of consensus is the recognition that a person’s belief system has a deciding influence on what happens in their life. It can be as empowering as it can be disabling. In therapy, my main focus is on helping others address issues related to their belief systems.

"Childrens' belief systems are in the early stages of forming. As such, they are ideally situated to be equipped with world views which are factually accurate and personally empowering.

"Kids must be given all relevant information --- and then expected --- to be self-sufficient problem-solvers. While children should receive help when they need it, the most vital part of that help is the knowledge and confidence to help themselves.
