Editorial Reviews

Review

Chad the Allergic Chipmunk is a delightful book with a serious message. It helps adults and children alike to increase awareness and tolerance for individual differences especially when the issue can be life threatening. Nicole Smith has taken a personal experience and turned it into an opportunity to help all children with special allergies. --Rose Bergles, Principal, Academy School District 20

Nicole Smith, with the able assistance of her illustrator Maggie Nichols, has zeroed in on milk allergy, peanut allergy and now tree nut allergy. The tale of Chad the Allergic Chipmunk is directed to the school aged child with food allergies and the support systems, family, friends, teachers and epinephrine kit that keep him safe. This book provides excellent reading and charming illustrations of specific situations and medically responsible approaches to a child with food allergies. --Bonnie Baswell, M.D., Allergist

Only a parent of a food-allergic child could have written a book like this. Nicole reminds the allergic child and his caregivers that we must always be vigilant yet she never lets us forget that there is a talented, interesting, special child in there as well. --Gina Clowes, Mother of Tree Nut Allergic Child

This book was pretty helpful for our 2 year old who just recovered from his first nut allergy incident. He is able to talk about Chad having a nut allergy which was our reason for getting it. The story is a little old for him as Chad is clearly in elementary school dealing with things like nut-free tables, bake sales, etc. but it's not a bad way to introduce future dangers as we learn to navigate a nut free world (neither of his parents have any food allergies)
One downside is it refers to Chad being special because he has nut allergies. That part we gloss over when reading it to our son, we want him to know he is normal, not special, because lots of other kids have the same. Otherwise, definitely a good buy (sight onseen).

As a parent of a newly diagnosed tree nut allergic 4 year old, this book has been very helpful. My son loves this book which helps him understand his allergy and why he has to worry about tree nuts now. The only thing I don't like is the use of the word "special" as describing chad and his allergy.

My 5 year old son LOVED this book. It brought tears to my eyes to see him sit down with this book after I read it to him and for him to flip through each page very slowly asking me questions and telling me what was going on on the pages. He has never reacted this way towards a book before so I know he was connecting with "Chad". I feel this book has given him a better understanding of his food allergy and I am very happy about this purchase.

THis is a great book breaks it down so even my 3 year old can grasp her new food allergy and make sense of it. Highly recommended. In the back of the book was an order form for some medic alert bracelets that seem to be better suited for little arms. Whoever thought of doing these books is great makes teaching them about there allergies much easier and fun too.

Excellent way to teach a preschooler about the proper precautions needed when living with a nut allergy. Gets the point across without excluding allergic children as sick!

The book itself is nice and my cashew-allergic son loves it. But the book is over-priced in my opinion. One could easily make a hard-cover version with the same price. The center page fell out after only a week.
