This simple book is designed to help eliminate
the fear asthma can provoke. In understandable
text and friendly line drawings, it explains facts
about asthma through the experiences of five-year-old
Graham, describing what happens during an asthma
attack, listing several triggers, and emphasizing
how parents and doctors can work together to help
manage the child's asthma.
story describes up-to-date treatment methods,
including home monitoring with a peak flow meter
and asthma diary. Because of good asthma control,
Graham can do anything he wants: run, play soccer,
swim, or ride his bike.
message for kids is clear: asthma is nothing to
be afraid of—they can deal with it and their
parents and doctor will help them. The message
for parents reading the book to their child is
clear as well. Childhood asthma can be controlled.
medical and technical facts have been reviewed
and updated by Thomas F. Plaut, M.D., author of
Dr. Tom Plaut's Asthma Guide and One Minute Asthma.
