Celia Kaye is a little girl who has something she thinks she needs to hide. She goes to great lengths to keep her mysterious secret concealed from her friends by becoming a master storyteller.
It is often difficult and frustrating for children to navigate food allergies and intolerances. This book is designed to help kids cope with and understand not only celiac disease, but all differences.
Kids will follow Celia Kaye on her adventures as she creates stories about her limitations using unlimited imagination.
Animated television series in development!
Celia Kaye and Girl Scouts of Central Texas have teamed up to create the Celia Kaye Explorer Patch Program. Just in time for Celiac Awareness month, this program is designed to teach girls about celiac disease and other food allergies. The first 30 girls to complete all ten activities will receive a copy of “The Adventures of Celia Kaye.” Take a look!
