Details: More than 2 million people in the United States have celiac disease, a digestive and autoimmune disorder that can damage the lining of the small intestine when gluten is eaten. As a child suffering from celiac disease, it can be difficult to understand how to deal with a restricted diet and many children feel alone in their gluten-free journey. Parents, teachers, and caregivers can use this fun, rhyming picture book to help explain what it means to be gluten-free, to reinforce the basics of what is and isn't allowed on a gluten-free diet, and to show that being a gluten-free kid isn't so bad after all. Sample verse: Although I must think carefully To make sure foods are gluten-free It's fun to pretend I'm a spy Searching for wheat, barley, and rye!
