Dozens of read-to books have been written for the parents of young children. They are cute but they are often incomplete or inaccurate. Winning Over Asthma is in a class of its own. This book was written and illustrated by Eileen Dolan, the mother of five-year-old Graham. Her line drawings are simple and realistic. The one hundred-word text in this book presents many important asthma concepts. A three year old can look, listen and learn with pleasure as a parent reads.

Spanish insert available. Please inquire at time of purchase.

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.

Graham's 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.

The 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.

All 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.
