A noteworthy review of Living Well from Booklist on October 15, 2002

Written at a slightly lower level than most books on these subjects, these debut entries in the Living Well series will be helpful to children trying to cope with chronic illness. Both books begin with anecdotes about young people who suffer from the illnesses. Asthma explains the condition and what happens in the body when an attack occurs. Also covered are causes of asthma, medications, and prospects for a cure. The volume on arthritis goes over basically the same kind of territory as it helps readers understand what it is like to live with JRA. Both volumes have clear, well-chosen color photos and are beefed up by a glossary and a bibliography.
