When Little Chef saw the cute package he was so excited and yelled "Who is that superhero?!"
When we told him it was all about a superhero who is just like him, his eyes got really big and he screamed "READ IT TO ME!"
The book starts out with a boy talking about how he is just a regular kid, he loves to play, build, etc but he does have an arch rival...gluten. He mentions foods that he can eat and that there are some foods he can't but that his parents find him replacements so it's not that hard. He explains the disease in very clear, easy terms that a child would understand. He talks about how he handles school events, and birthday parties, and family get togethers. And he ends with a very positive message about himself!
The illustrations were very bright and cheery and Little Chef was in awe. He really, really enjoyed the book. He loved the drawing of what gluten is the best, we think the visual aid helped him a lot, gluten is no longer just a word but something he can see in his mind now. Ever since we first read the book he's been a lot more accepting of the fact that he can't have certain foods. He's also asks us to read it to him every day!
We know his classmates are going to love this book when we read it to them next month!
Brother Chef also read the book and thought it was great! He really related to the child in the book and said he liked the pictures. He's also looking forward to having the book read to his classes.
