Carter is an Albert Whitman author.From Booklist:
Ages 4^-7. With his daughter, Siri, as the engaging, optimistic voice of the text, Carter, the author of several books for older children and teens, tackles a condition that impacts his family. Siri simply and clearly explains what happens when you have asthma, what it feels like to have an attack ("like this great big animal--a tiger, maybe--was sitting on my chest" ), and what can be done to manage the condition, by doctors and parents, and eventually, by children themselves. Some of the photos are obvious setups, and a few have an unattractive yellowish cast, but most are unaffected, homey scenes of Siri at home and at school, sometimes being given medication by her parents, sometimes playing actively with her brother, her classmates, and her friends. The balance between basic information and personal story seems just right for the intended age group. One of the better recent books on a subject that has definitely begun to gain the attention of children's writers. Stephanie Zvirin
