Sean likes to pretend he’s a lion, roaring in the jungle. But this lion starts to cough, his chest hurts, and it’s hard to breathe. This lion has asthma. So Sean’s mother gives him the mask to the nebulizer that will make his medicine into an easy-to-breathe mist. Now Sean imagines he’s a jet pilot.
This book simultaneously tells the story of a lion and a boy who both have asthma. The pictures on each page show either a boy or a lion. I gave this book 4 starts because it was really great and could be used in a variety of settings. I had asthma when I was younger and I never read a book about it. I was glad to find a book that children could relate to. You could use this book to help a child cope with his or her asthma or use it to teach the class why a child has to use a machine with medicine every day. I think you could also read this book and make the children draw how they think asthma feels, or if they have it how it does feel to them.read more
