  • My 3 year old daughter has had some hefty asthma attacks for the past year. It never occurred to me to find a book to help her cope and deal with the fear she might be experiencing until someone suggested it to me. I searched Amazon and found this cute book about Sean. It was perfect. It is simply written so, at her young age, she can understands the content. She relates to Sean coughing when he plays, having to do his nebulizer treatments, and how scared he feels when he is having an attack. But then, Sean feels better after his therapy and goes off happy and playing again. My daughter loves looking at this book when we are doing her nebulizer treatments at bedtime. I think it has helped her grasp the concept that she is not the only one that experiences this since nobody in our house has asthma except for her. I really appreciate this book and I thank the writer for creating it!

  • What a great book on asthma! I wish my three year old was still using a nebulizer and not an inhaler! Great, imaginative book that engaged my toddler with its beautiful illustrations, imaginative storyline, and connection to his own experience of asthma. If you are looking for help getting your child to use a nebulizer, this story of a boy pretending to fly a jet during his treatment may help.

  • My son developed asthma at 7 months of age after being hospitalized with RSV. He is now only 1 years old, but does enjoy this book as much as a 1 year old can. The reason I bought it was for my 3 year old who had many questions about why his little brother had to have breathing treatments, wasn't feeling well, etc. This book was perfect. Not too medical in it's terms, adorable illustrations, lovely story line about using fantasy to make treatments better. I can't wait until my 1 year old is old enough to really enjoy and understand it. I highly recommend it for parents of asthmatics, or any one with young children who are around other children with asthma.

  • This is a cute story. My son was recently diagnosed with asthma. While he doesn't have to be on an inhaler nebulizer at this time, he does hate what asthma does to him. He has to stop running and wait until his medicine starts to work. We are able to read this book and talk a little about asthma (He's 2) and about what it means for him. This book is a great one for reassuring little kids that they are ok, that others have this, and that soon they can play again.
    The only reason I rated this a four instead of a five is that I think the text is a little stilted at times.

  • My 2 1/2 year old has asthma and I bought this book to teach him more about it. This story helps put the disease into terms that a child can more readily relate to. When I say "can you breathe?" he is not as likely to answer as when I relate it to the story and say "is the lion's roar wheezy?" The book also ensures him that he will be okay and other kids have the same condition. It is a fun book that I would recommend for a wide range of ages.

  • I like the concept for my son but I'm not in love with the story line.

  • The book is, however, based upon the circumstances of a real boy, Sean, who has asthma. In the story Sean pretends to be a Lion going about normal stalking activities in the jungle. When he suffers an asthma attack and becomes weakened he is no longer able to perform his boyish and lionlike activities with a lion's strength. The coughing and wheezing frighten Sean and the courage of the Lion vanishes as Sean lies down and is confined to his nebulizer. Sean's mother offers him a new avenue to explore with his imagination when she suggests he be a jet pilot. The whirring of the machine and the gas mask on his face provide realistic props for Sean's visualization. This simple story shows how sick children can use creative visualization and employ vivid imaginary settings as a basis for coping with their disease or disability. As Sean's bronchial tubes dilate and more oxygen is able to enter his lungs, the Lion in Sean returns and once again Sean's imagination takes him away to his jungle adventures. This book would be particularly valuable to read to junior children. They would understand and identify with Sean making believe he is a lion or a hippo in the jungle and then as a jet pilot. The text introduces the language of the special illness that Sean has. Words like asthma, breathe, cough and wheeze. The language also addresses the emotions that Sean goes through like fear, hurt, and the use of a lion obviously demonstrates the courage that Sean displays. The language is simple enough too for older children to read independently and introduces text challenges like the sound effects of the machine (nebulizer) and the lion - Rroooarrr, Zooom, Grrrrrrrroww.

  • I loved this books easy and fun explanation of asthma and it's nebulizer treatments. My son is two & was just diagnosed as having asthma & this was very helpful for me to read & he liked hearing the story & looking at the pictures. He really enjoyed seeing that others do breathing treatments too. I liked the hints about pretending the machine is a pilot's mask- we say our son is "breathing like a dragon" when he wears his mask. Also, the control over him turning his machine on or off was a great suggestion, I think. Thank you very very much. This was perfect for us right now.
