My 8-year-old was diagnosed last month and I just want to recommend the book "Eating Gluten-Free with Emily". My daughter loves it and it has really helped me explain what's going on. It inspired her to be a "gluten detective", which has been very helpful when friends are offering snacks or my clueless husband offers something she can't eat.

We also have an 8-year-old that was just diagnosed.  He thought that book was OK, but a little young.  We really liked The gluten-free Kid:  A Celiac Survival Guide.  We have a library copy.  I haven't found it online yet.  I'm afraid it is out of print since there are only used copies available on Amazon.

Another kid's book is "Adam's Gluten free Surprise".

My 9 year old got diagonised in November 2012 just before her 9th birthday. I have been looking into stuff for her to read. She is very good about reading labels on her own now and looking for things that she can eat!! What other books are out there for her to read?

Thank you! I've been hunting up books other than "The Trouble that Jack had" for my children. Most are not available here, so I'm trying to figure out ways to afford the shipping to get them.

My daughter loves that book too. She was diagnosed a year ago at age 6 and it was perfect for her -- she still asks us to read it to her (or reads it to herself) frequently.

 

I also got The gluten-free Kid out of the library, but I think it was a little old for my daughter.

 

It seems odd that there aren't more choices, with the incidence of celiac skyrocketing like it is.
