This is a beautifully illustrated book for children, parents and families of those dealing with seizures and epilepsy. The story is a simple one of friendship between a boy and a girl when Teddy starts having seizures. The book is well written and helps kids understand what seizures are and what do they have to go through with test and treatment.I found the explanation of the EEG quiet genial....It is like a phone and your brain is talking through the EEG.....very easy for a child to capture.The illustrations are colorful and vibrant and the paper material of excellent quality.This book is a gem and should help parents and children understand seizures and epilepsy.
My 3 yr. old daughter had a seizure suddenly last year and our family was thrust quickly into a world with tests and appointments that we didn't understand and a diagnosis that was bewildering to say the least. I was so excited to find this book as it explained to my daughter from a child's perspective what had happened to her and the tests and appointments that we continued to undergo. It was also a great reminder to me of how confusing this whole situation must have seemed to her as well! Would recommend this book to anyone with a child that has experienced seizures or has been diagnosed with epilepsy. Also, to doctors and educators to teach other children and family members about the diagnosis.
I have a 4 year old that has epilepsy. I gave this book to his teacher for story time so his class can have a better understanding of what he goes through. His Teacher said she loves the book and reads it often for the class.
This was a good book to read aloud although if you were reading it to the age group that it is meant to be read to, then your students are not going to understand all the technical terms used throughout the book. It was good however to start off with this book for a presentation to adults because it gave them a good idea of what epilepsy is before the actual lesson began.
