Update: This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the winner and thanks so much to all who entered the giveaway!
I am so honored that Katie Chalmers, the author and illustrator of the unique new book, Mommy, What is Celiac Disease?, asked me to participate in the Gluten-Free Holiday Giveaway Galore x 10 event. It’s a giveaway of a signed copy of her book as well as a terrific gift package featuring gluten-free products from favorite companies and some fun and sweet surprises for kids. I just had to join in!
First, I have to tell you that Katie’s book is beautifully written and illustrated. Written for children who have been diagnosed with celiac, it focuses on the disease in simple terms as well as all the wonderful real food that those who are gluten free can eat.
Of course, I don’t need to tell you that I love that approach. That’s the gluten free easily—gfe—way, and it works.
Along with the text, Katie has created some truly captivating illustrations. I’ve never seen any others exactly like them before. Both Katie and her daughter have celiac and the character in the book is modeled after her daughter.
