Robert, a five-year-old with epilepsy, has a seizure at school. The students don’t understand what a seizure is all about, and one child even makes fun of Robert.
To make Robert and the other students understand what happened, the Coach gives the children a lesson in music, describing it as an Orchestra in Our Brain. He illustrates just how the brain works by using musical metaphors.
Robert’s brain decided to play the wrong note, so he had a seizure. The orchestra in his brain was slightly off key.
This book’s simple and non-graphic way to explain epilepsy to children is one that will allow kids to understand seizures, and to learn about people who are different than themselves.
