Safe Treats

Stasie John has two children (she calls them her "food-allergy
warriors") who eat differently than other kids. To help them live
happily on their special diet, she penned The Gluten Glitch
(Beaver's Pond Press, Inc.), a charming book for youngsters
who can't eat gluten. Whether your little one has celiac disease
or a gluten allergy, this colorfully illustrated tale speaks directly
to the emotional and social aspects of feeling deprived. The
story revolves around young Gideon's frustration and how his
mother successfully reframes his gluten intolerance in a positive
way: "Let's play the I Can Eat game!" Together, mom and Gideon
list all the yummy goodies he can safely savor. An uplifting book
for every child who lives with special dietary needs.
