Book Summary:

"Beckmin goes to School" is meant to raise awareness for celiac disease and the everyday challenges children with celiac disease face in their otherwise normal activities. As diagnosis of celiac disease increases, education, awareness, and understanding will be the keys to making celiac kids feel normal and included. Written for children to help them express and understand celiac disease, the book is a wonderful tool for children and adults alike.


This is a well illustrated picture book about a boy who cannot eat gluten. Beckmin goes to his first day of Kindegarten and meets some new friends who do not know what Celiac Disease is. When he explains that he can't eat foods that contain gluten they think it's wierd but he corrects them and says that it's not wierd, it's special. 

For children who have this disease it is an on-going struggle to keep them healthy and safe, especially when the child is at school. Many dangers lurk around, even in certain products. Parents who have children with this condition will enjoy the positive message the book contains.  The illustrations are delightful, children will enjoy looking at them as they turn the pages of this e-book.
