Update: This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to Kahri (Our Peculiar Life)! Kahri’s comment was: “Would love to win this! I am GF and my daughters are just going GF. My 9 year old is having problems understanding it. I would love to show her this book!” Thanks so much to all who participated. Ihope you’ll join us again for more giveaways that fit the gfe approach.
You may have read my post on my main page on Melanie Krumrey and her blog, Gluten-Free Krums, for Sea’s (Book of Yum) Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger event. In it I mentioned that I’d become a fan of Melanie’s through her wonderful book, Bagels, Buddy, and Me. This is a terrific book that offers an easy-to-read introduction to celiac and gluten intolerance. Both written and illustrated by Melanie, it offers her family’s personal story. (Melanie’s shares some more here at the Bagels, Buddy, and Me site.) While geared towards children, this book is also helpful for adults who don’t necessarily want to read about statistics or studies, but want a simple understanding of celiac and gluten intolerance. As you can see from the cover above and one of the illustrations below, it’s a very appealing book.
Sandra Robbins’ (The Gluten-Free Optimist) eight-year old daughter has been reviewing children’s books from time to time on Sandra’s site. Her daughter’s write-ups are just what one wants to read—well-done, honest reviews that get to the point. After reading some of her daughter’s earlier reviews, I mentioned to Sandra on Twitter that Melanie’s book was an especially worthy one. Sandra was unfamiliar with Bagels, Buddy, and Me, but she contacted Melanie and soon received a complimentary copy. You can read Sandra’s daughter’s very positive review here. (You can read some Amazon reviews here.)
