Incredible Edible Gluten Free Food for Kids

Incredible Edible Gluten-Free Food for Kids by Sheri L. Sanderson is the ONLY book for kids about living with Celiac Disease at my local library!  Incredible Edible is a resource guide for families with Celiac Disease.  It was written by a mom of a child with CD, OCD and Autism.  An easy to read format covers basic information about g-free goods, organizing your kitchen and food preparation.  An entire chapter is dedicated to understanding CD, it's history and symptoms.  The recipes are organized by category such as Appetizers and Snacks, Soups and Stews, and Sweet Treats. Each recipe is also marked as EZ, Finger Food, or Less Than 30 Minutes; which is helpful when browsing through the 150 recipes.  Included are 10 yeast bread and 5 bread machine recipes.  
My favorite chapter is:  Just for Fun Craft Recipes.  If you have a g-free toddler,this chapter provides great recipes for g-free play dough(an essential item for any g-free kid under the age of 5), finger paint and slime recipes.  These recipes would be great to copy and supply along with the ingredients, to your childs' pre-school teacher.  There is also a great resource guide for "diagnosing" what when wrong with your g-free baking so you can correct the error in the future.  
Grab your toddler and go create with g-free play dough - better yet - make a mess with some home-made slime!
