We Take Enzymes
We Take Enzymes was first written when Pattie’s sons were in pre-school and wondering why they had to take enzymes. In the first construction paper draft, Sean and Joseph helped with the text and drew the pictures in crayon. This book was read every day and helped them to understand the need for enzymes. This book educates young readers on the importance of taking enzymes and how these enzymes aid digestion. Told from Sean and Joseph’s perspective, this book will engage young readers with Shwachman-Diamond Syndrome and Cystic Fibrosis. The book also focuses on the role good nutrition and exercise play in growing and keeping one healthy. This book may be an encouragement to young readers who have special needs because it shows children with special needs leading full, exciting and rewarding lives.
