Finding literary support when coping with an ileostomy can be challenging. As an adult, Campbell Dwyer discovered this firsthand and wanted to change that for children everywhere. Thus began the creation of her debut children's novel. My Silly Illy is a comical introduction to help children understand what is happening with their bodies and how to thrive with their new appendage. Every child is a superhero, and My Silly Illy makes sure they know it!
Personalize each book to your child with available picture placement and hair cutouts. Everyone deserves to know that they aren't alone, and when it comes to ileostomy, we're all in this together!

This is the best book!! I am a special ed one on one para pro that works with a child with an ostomy bag. It is wonderful for a book to be around for a child just like him!! I would recommend this book for every classroom as a read aloud or used individually for children who don't realize that children are different in many ways. Back to the book, it shows different children and where they live and how they interact with having a bag. There is also a wonderful note at the end of the book to the parents of said children, for them to receive a pick me up that they don't often get when having a child with different needs.
This is a children's book, but I do not think it is for every kid. This book is all about having an ileostomy bag. I read this book to my twin boys that as special needs. They do not have an ileostomy, but there is different things in their EC classroom. Some kids has feeding tubes and other types of bags. I feel that sharing anything different with kids helps them understand what is going on with other kids. I think the book help to open up talks about how all kids are different, and they are different. I also thinks this book lets the kids that are different sees that not all people can sees their difference as a super power, and that is ok. I think this was a well written story, and I think this book can help so many kids. This book can also help open minds of people that never seen ileostomy bags. This is a much needed book. Thank you for writing this book. Great book. I receive an ARC of this book. This review is my own honest opinion about the book like all my reviews are.
