Food Allergies and Me
I had the chance to review the food allergy children's book Food Allergies and Me by Juniper Skinner
This story is about Jack who is allergic to peanuts, eggs and milk. The story takes the reader through the basics of food allergy safety at school, playground, and birthday parties, from the view point of Jack. An allergic child might enjoy seeing a book character bring their own "safe cupcake" to a birthday party, as it is familiar to so many allergic families, and a part of Jack's life as well.
The reader also follows Jack as he goes to the allergist and other allergy basics in the language of a young child.
Jack shares more about himself than his food allergy, such as his love of dinosaurs and soccer.
Like most children's food allergy books, the book is meant to initiating allergy awareness not provide medical information.
