 About the Book:

“Beckmin Goes to School” is Bykowski’s first children’s book and was inspired by her middle son Beckmin, who was diagnosed with celiac disease at 18 months, after extensive sickness and a series of hospital visits. Since then, Christy has worked with Beckmin through the everyday challenges of being a kid with this disease, dealing with his frustrations and his own learning curve as to what celiac disease is, how to explain it and what it means in his day-to-day life. Beckmin’s stories, written to help children define, understand and explain celiac disease, are meant to be both empowering and educational for kids and their parents.

  1. This looks like a great book to share! I have a friend that suffers from celiac disease and I’ve seen her suffer from the result of eating gluten. So glad to see increased awareness and the availability of gluten-free processed foods.

  3. I have two granddaughters who have gluten intolerance and I think that this book would be great for them and for our other grandchildren to read so we all have a better understanding of what gluten is and where it is found, I am forever trying to try new recipes and learn more about gluten intolerance and this would probably help me also. Did you know that gluten is even found in toothpastes and soy sauce, I am excited by the new gluten free items that come out on the market place every day. Gluten-Free Me, Beckmin Goes to School by Christy E. Bykowski, sounds very informative.
