Item description for Bella and Gizmo's Adventures ('bella and Gizmo's Adventures -) by Jodi Pliszka...
The inspirational warmth of this delightful children's book is directed at the child who suffers from hair loss. Whether from the genetic condition, Alopecia, or from cancer treatment, hair loss for children is a traumatic experience that sets them apart from their friends and family. This wonderful story addresses the lonely feeling of sadness from the ridicule others create by pointing how Gizmo, the hairless Sphynx cat, is "different," and shows the child how he learns that he is "unique and rare" instead of "different." Then Gizmo learns that he is not alone when his Master, Jessica, brings home another hairless kitty, Bella. He learns there are other cats just like him, and the two cats become best friends.

This book is excellent and very eye-opening! I am a Guidance Counselor and I am going to purchase these books for our school programming. There aren't many books that try to break that "barbie doll stereotype" and I think this book does that. This will be great to teach kids that people are different, and it truly is "what's on the inside that matters" not what someone looks like...sex, age or race. I will rate this with FIVE BIG STARS and a GOOD JOB to the author! This book is awesome.

THIS BOOK IS FIVE STARS!!!! I own SPHYNX CATS...and the books really depict the cats and their personalities! If my cats could speak, I would imagine that they would have similar verbiage as written in the books! We love the colorful, yet simple illustrations and really enjoy the stories! There aren't many books written with SPHYNX CATS as the main characters.....THESE ARE SUPERB! ENJOY- CATS LOVERS...this book is a must have! 5 stars for sure!!!

BUY THIS BOOK...IT IS WONDERFUL! My husband has been going through cancer treatment and lost his hair due to the chemo. This book is fantastic for us to read to our four children (ages 13-11-8-3)....it helps my kids to understand that Daddy is the same person, and 'it's what's on the inside that matters, not the loss of his hair'....this really opened up family discussions a great deal. I went to [...]website and read the AUTHORS BIOGRAPHY....she really lost all her hair, too, and really understands people well...KUDOS TO THE AUTHOR, MS.JODI PLISZKA....you are great and helped our family out a lot! We all can't wait to read the next books in your series.. All my kids want the stuffed animals of BELLA and GIZMO. We can't wait to buy them. THANKS! FIVE STARS FOR SURE!

This book is devine! My daughter has a medical condition that leaves her feeling a bit different...this book really allows us to talk about "what's on the inside is what matters the most" not the outside. MY daughter loves the drawings and makes me read this book every night, over and over again. Thanks to the author, my daughter opens up to me more and more. We can't wait to get the BELLA stuffed animal and GIZMO, as well! They will be great associative animals, and will surely help my little girl open up more! We love BELLA AND GIZMO they are bald and beautiful...and the story is heartwarming and has a beautiful Christian perspective! BUY THIS BOOK......we can't wait for more in the series, so we can BUY THEM ALL! GOD BLESS ALL!
