Written by Kim Gosselin and illustrated by Moss Freedman, this book is part of The Special Kids in School Series and is a must-have for every counselor, teacher, school nurse, parent, or caregiver. This beautifully illustrated and fun-to-read storybook tells the story of Justin, a kid living with asthma. He describes what it is like to have asthma, what happens during an asthma attack, and how his asthma can be treated and controlled. When read aloud, other children can start to identify why a peer with asthma may be treated differently and begin to empathize with the peer. In addition, children with asthma or children who have conditions that set them apart as being different begin to feel accepted and safe. Book includes a Kid Quiz to reinforce new information and Ten Tips for Teachers to provide additional facts and ideas for teacher use. 32 pages, softcover.
