All about asthma

Book Cover
Average Rating
A. Whitman,
Pub. Date:
"Using his own experiences as illustrations, a young boy gives a clear & thorough picture of living with asthma. The text is well organized; chapters cover what asthma is & isn't, how its causes are determined, how it is treated, & most importantly, how to manage it. The emphasis is upbeat & positive; great care is taken to portray asthmatics as ordinary individuals who can lead normal lives...This is the best treatment of the subject currently available."--SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL. "An excellent introduction for asthma sufferers & for the general public."--KIRKUS REVIEWS. Ages 8-12.
