I received this message from a mom who shared 'Adam' with her daughter.
"My 8 year old daughter was diagnosed with Celiac in July. I tried to buy her a copy of Adam's Gluten Free Surprise for Christmas, but I couldn't get a copy in our local book stores, so I bought her a Kindle and the first book we downloaded was this one. She immediately read the whole book to me and we were shocked at how much her past 5 months mirrored Adam's. She has not yet met another Celiac child and it made her feel so good to read this and know she isn't alone in this journey. Many times, she feels like she is the only child dealing with this and it was heart-warming to hear her read Adam's story and know that other children are experiencing the same issues and feel the same as she does. Unfortunately, I think she is now hoping that on Valentine's Day she will experience Hailey's Gluten Free Surprise! Thank you for such an awesome book for children coping with Celiac. I can't wait to get my hands on a hard copy for her to share at school. Every school should have a copy of this book!"
June 8th, 2012 - OK, so your book came today. I LOVE it! It actually brought tears to my eyes when they were doing the party. It worries me so much how Abigail, and to some extent others, will act when they learn how careful they need to be. Abigail knows to be careful, but she is a kid, and kids make mistakes. I often worry about how hard it will be for her at school. This is such a great book. I can not wait to read it to her and Connor at bedtime. And I can not wait to send it to school with her next year. It is really an informative book. Thank you!!!! ~Cherie
Aug. 8. 2011 Here is my 7 year old daughter's review of your book: "I LOVED it!!! I think it is great for everyone with Celiac Disease!!! I am going to have my teacher read it to my class when I go back to school. Thank you for the book!!!!"
May 1, 2011 by Jenny “My 6 1/2 yr old son asked to see your book I bought yesterday at the GF Vendor Fair. He started to read it and smiled and said "hey, that's just like me!" : ) So far he's really liking reading this book..so thank you! After reading it myself, I will be sending it along with each if my 2 kids to have their teachers read. I try to educate them, and this will help in the process. I also plan to send it with them each new school year. This is a wonderful book! I had both kids read it and both got up from their chairs after reading a little ways into it and quoted certain lines and said..that's just like we do..or that's just like me! It really is a wonderful book and so nice to have something to make them feel like there’s someone else like them. The first comment right off the bat was about the snack jar. My son’s eye’s lit up and said, “hey, a snack jar just like I have!”

"Great book, donated one to my school and it has been read to many grades. It helps the kids who have Celiac and the other kids understand a little more why mine is eating something a little different without her having to explain it...again."
June 7, 2011 by Lorraine: As a parent, your book is GREAT & very well written. It is a must for a child with Celiac, especially one in school! When my daughter was diagnosed I contacted her teacher, she said she had lots of knowledge on celiac because she has a friend with it. But little to my surprise she was not as informed & did not know all about cross contamination! Recently her class was having a fruits, veggie & pretzel party the teacher sent me a note to send in pretzels & she stated in the note that my daughter would be ok with the fruits & veggies because they are GF. But I had to let her know that yes Fruits &veggies are GF in their natural state, BUT due to cross contamination with utensils, countertops, hands, etc. my daughter could accidently ingest gluten. Your book is a very helpful tool and will DEFINATELY be going to school with her every year!!
