The Great Katie Kate Explains Epilepsy Reviews
My 5 year old son was recently diagnosed with partial onset epilepsy, and he has enjoyed this book (as his choice) repeatedly everything evening this week. The book does a great job explaining that there are different kinds of seizures, how to get tested for these, and how to take care of yourself as well. He has really enjoyed the story, and we use it as a conversation means to make sure he knows who to tell if he feels funny, and how he needs to take care of himself.
Super fast shipping. Great book for kids to understand epilepsy.
Great resource. Starting out explaining to my 7 year old. Looking forward to sharing with him soon.
My 5 yr old daughter was asking the whys... Why does she have sezuires? Why don't her friends? What happens when she has them? This book helped to answers these questions.
This was a gift for my granddaughter. She love the book.
Read with a light tone if your kiddo isn't scared of their epilepsy and you'll love this too! Cute story!
Great book explaining different types of seizures.
