This is a beautifully illustrated book for children, parents and families of those dealing with seizures and epilepsy. The story is a simple one of friendship between a boy and a girl when Teddy starts having seizures. The book is well written and helps kids understand what seizures are and what do they have to go through with test and treatment.
I found the explanation of the EEG quiet genial....It is like a phone and your brain is talking through the EEG.....very easy for a child to capture.
The illustrations are colorful and vibrant and the paper material of excellent quality.
This book is a gem and should help parents and children understand seizures and epilepsy.
