Jude The Dude
Bridget Batson has a new book out Jude The Dude The Peanut Allergy Kid
The first thing that grabbed me was the quirky pictures in this book. They are part carton, part photograph. Jude learns he has a peanut allergy, he over comes his fear of his epi-pen shot, and practices with his trainer.
He does what most allergic kids do, he brings his peanut free cupcakes to places, takes his medication everywhere. Jude also sits at peanut free table at school and learns other ways to live safely.
One thing Jade does (that few allergy kid book characters do) he grows up to be a successful man with kids of his own.
Jude the Dude is also a website Jude The Dude .com
Full disclosure I was sent a pdf copy of the book.
