Synopsis of book: “Beckmin goes to School” is meant to raise awareness for celiac disease and the everyday challenges children with celiac disease face in their otherwise normal activities.  As diagnosis of celiac disease increases, education, awareness, and understanding will be the keys to making celiac kids feel normal and included. Written for children to help them express and understand celiac disease, the book is a wonderful tool for children and adults alike.

Our thoughts: This is a great book for families with celiac kids. Beckmin helps these young children understand they are not different from others, they just have an allergy they need to make others aware of. As Beckmin goes throughout his day, he learns how to make friends, turn situations of bullying into a learning experiences for those around him and doesn't let his allergy stop him from enjoying all the wonderful things kids do in school.

We found this book to be very well written. The illustrations are a perfect fit and add to the positive themes throughout the book.
