Qamber Kids began a little over two years ago with a vision of bringing kid-friendly designs to the children’s and clean young adult book market. Today we wanted to highlight one of our favorite authors to work with, Michelle Diana Lowe. Our team had a wonderful time helping to bring Michelle’s Dairy Free series to life. Learn about the first in her series, Dairy Free and Happy! below.

“Before I met the wonderful Najla and her fabulous team, I was completely
lost. I had a great idea for my children’s book Dairy Free and Happy and created a rough draft, but had no one to execute the idea and turn it into a profession al looking children’s book ready for the book market. Feeling dejected and not knowing where to turn, I decided to do a google search and came across the website for Qamber Kids. I sent a general enquiry to Najla and got a warm, friendly person on the other end.
Soon after Najla finished creating Dairy Free and Happy! my book was accepted by Waterstone
s. For anyone who knows about bookseller s, this is a huge deal. I’ve had wonderful comments from many people about the layout and design of my book, and I am quick to tell people that Najla Qamber Designs and Qamber Kids created it. They deserve all the credit!
I would definitely
recommend Qamber Kids and Najla Qamber Designs to all authors who have any design or illustrati on needs. Najla is the best in the business and at the top of her game. You could not work with a better and more profession al person.”

Recently we had the privilege to cover the teen companion book to Michelle’s kid-centric Dairy Free series, Dairy Free Teens.
This book is a must-have for teenagers who have been diagnosed with a dairy allergy by a qualified physician and for those who have been told to avoid dairy by a qualified doctor. This book is written by Michelle Diana Lowe, a woman in her early 30s who understands what it means to have a dairy allergy. She was diagnosed as a teen and has learnt to navigate herself through multiple allergies and intolerances. Now she wants to empower young people with the allergy in her essential guide for 13-18 year olds.
Dairy-Free Teens discusses the most important things teenagers need to know to remain safe, healthy and happy, and to overcome any issues relating to their allergy. This book provides effective strategies to help adolescents manage the allergy itself and deal with any associated feelings and emotions. Teenagers will learn how to cope with their allergies on a day-to-day basis at home, school and outdoors, and be able to deal with any challenges that may arise in friendships and relationships.
This book is a great guide for teens with dairy allergies. But it can also be adapted to aid young people with any other food allergy. Parents may also find this book useful as well as professionals working with young people, who may find this book a good learning resource and educational supplement.
