The Little Lungs Book

Dr Tara Carr

Halting the march towards asthma

In The Little Lungs Book, Dr. Tara Carr takes readers on an enlightening journey through childhood asthma, simplifying the complexities for the reader. Childhood asthma can be challenging, especially for kids. It involves tight lungs, difficulty breathing, and the distinct wheezy sound. Typically diagnosed around age 5, it can appear in babies due to infections and environmental factors. While medicines like inhalers provide relief, there’s no cure yet; however, research is making advancements every day.

Throughout the book, Dr. Carr explores factors increasing asthma likelihood and suggests steps one can take to stay safe. The book provides insights into the latest asthma research, guiding readers to breathe easier. By the time the reader reaches the end of the book, they’ll be well-informed about their baby’s asthma risk and equipped with strategies to reduce that risk.
