I asked author Rhiannon Merritt-Rubadue what makes her book special, and she wrote: "There are many different ways to eat! Some children eat with their mouth, some have a feeding tube in their nose or in their belly, and some kids get special food intravenously! This colorful and educational book shows children eating in every possible way. Perfect for young children (to age 7) on enteral or parenteral nutrition, and for their caregivers and educators."

An Excerpt from 'There's More Than One Way to Eat!'

"Your stomach isn't the only place you can put your food!
This is Delaney, whose small intestine holds her feeding tube.
Since she can't have food inside her tummy,
And she still needs a way to eat,
Her doctor put in a J-tube, and it's actually pretty neat!"
