Presenting a Smart Allergy~Friendly Education Product Awareness class to families new to managing food allergies. Several of the families were in the midst of trying to figure out how they were going to navigate their child's newly discovered life-threatening peanut allergy. I was pleased to have on hand a book my own children have enjoyed.
THE GIRL WHO CANNOT EAT PEANUT BUTTER, written by Sharon Chisvin.
This easy to read, poetically written story shares the many challenges a little girl goes through while coping with a peanut butter food allergy at school. It simply points out the obvious: that all classes are "made up of all kinds of children.. Each one of them special in a different way".

As a mom of a child with a life-threatening peanut allergy, I love her positive approach. I think you will too!
