Dialysis: An Aquarium Filter for your Blood explains the experience of dialysis, answering questions about this treatment, including: What is it? Why do you need it? How does it feel? Written in easy to understand language with fun color illustrations, this book introduces you to Amari who describes their experience of receiving dialysis, in order to reassure readers and help them to understand this treatment for kids who have kidneys that don’t work so well.

The story uses an analogy that compares dialysis to an aquarium water filter, to explain that the treatment cleans our blood by filtering out the ‘dirty stuff’ that can make us sick, just like an aquarium water filter cleans the water in an aquarium to keep the fish healthy.

Important information is included in a ‘Facts’ section, covering information about kidneys, different types of dialysis, what the treatment entails, and how to prepare for it. You will also find a convenient glossary of ‘Doctor Words’ with relevant medical terms explained in plain language. This is an informative and enjoyable book that aims to provide comfort, hope, and key information to children and their families.
