{The Great Katie Kate Explains Epilepsy: M. Maitland Deland}

{Synopsis} – When Jimmy is diagnosed with epilepsy, he starts to worry. What is happening to my body? Am I ok? Does this mean I’m different from other kids?

Jimmy and the other young patients in the neurologist’s office get a visit from the Great Katie Kate, a spunky redheaded superhero who appears when kids get worried. Katie Kate takes the children on a medical adventure to learn about the various forms of epileptic seizures and treatments. Along the way, they meet the Worry Wombat, a creature that appears when worries loom large. As Jimmy and his new friends to ask questions about their condition and its triggers, they make the Worry Wombat disappear!

This superhero saga provides an entertaining and indispensable tool for parents and medical professionals who are seeking a positive way to help young epilepsy patients understand their condition and deal with their fears. As a well-respected physician who specializes in the treatment of women and children, the author presents challenging medical concepts in clear, accurate, and understandable prose.

This is the fourth book in the Great Katie Kate series, helping young children with serious illnesses understand their condition and live with confidence.

{My thoughts} – The Great Katie Kate is a type of super hero character to help children learn more about medical conditions in terms they can understand.

In this book she helps to teach children about epilepsy. She explains it from what could be causing it, how to treat it and ways to prevent it from occurring. I believe this would be a good book for a pediatric unit in the hospital, a parent to but their child to help them to better understand what is going on with them and a pediatricians office.

This book is a must read for any child that has had a seizure or has seen another person have one. The best thing you can do for any child is to keep them informed.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
