I am an elementary teacher from the US and the moment I saw this book I knew I had to order it. I had a feeding tube myself for a while and know firsthand how frustrating it is to have a tube, especially when others have never even heard of them. I'm adding it to my classroom library so the students can learn more about disabilities and learn to be kind. Thank you for bring awareness and making a kid-friendly book about it!
This book is fantastic, our daughter that was NG fed as a baby has been asking questions,when she sees pictures of herself as a baby and sees her NG tube. She absolutely loves this book (she loves all the abilities in me books) highly recommend this book 📚
My daughter, 8, has been tube fed since birth and also has complex heart defects. Lately, she has become sad on a few occasions about being 'different' and feeling like she is the only one who has a tube. This book was great for her, she commented throughout how the character was like her and opened up discussions about why someone might need a tube. She also identified with many of the tubes mentioned and we remembered together using photos how it has changed for her. This is the perfect addition to the heart defect book for her...finally she feels like she isn't so alone. Thank you!
We have just received the tube feeding book, Mali was so excited about it and when I was reading it to her she kept saying about her experience of having the ng tube when she was 4 after her fontan. She even spotted that the little girl from the chd book was on the teacups aswel ❤️❤️. We love all your books and I think it’s amazing how the books allow the children to talk freely about their own experiences. Can’t wait to see the next book in the series. 😀😀
Thanks for publishing a book about this important topic. My daughter Hazel felt special when she read it; at age 8 she is starting to wonder why nobody else she meets has a tube, so this book made her feel close to others. I love the fact that you Include all types of tubes and especially that you dedicate a page to blended diet!! Written in a simple and understandable way with beautiful, eye catching images! I have recommended it to the primary school, the gastro and paediatric departments at hospital and on Facebook groups . I hope you sell many copies and raise awareness. This series should be available in all children’s libraries !
