This is the first children’s book I have reviewed and it’s a rather special one.
Written for children born with congenital hypothyroidism, it explains what it means to have this diagnosis.
This book is a reassuring read to children, as well as their families and friends, concerning the need for blood tests, taking daily medication and also covers what the thyroid gland is and why its hormones are important in the growth and development of children.
It’s an uplifting book to reassure those affected that children can indeed go on to live a healthy life with hypothyroidism. As a guide, I’d say the book is probably most useful to children aged 2 and over.
If you know a child with hypothyroidism, this could be a really useful book for them when it comes to understanding their health condition.
Overall, it was a lovely read which I am sure will help many families with the often shocking diagnosis of a lifelong thyroid condition in their child.
You can get a copy of this book from Amazon on the link below and also check out the other books that may be helpful to you in my bookstore, here.
