I read the negative reviews after we had borrowed the book from the library and both kids had given it thumbs up. I agree that the book can't stand alone and serve to explain what food allergies are; however, I don't think that's the intent of the book at all. What the book does offer is perspective (food allergies are real), information (here are the Top 8 foods that cause most food allergies and here are the things that can happen if someone eats a food they're allergic to), reassurance, (just because you have food allergies doesn't mean you can't enjoy activities), and a great way to start a more in-depth conversation about food allergies.
The extra information in the back, which includes a quiz for kids to test their knowledge of foods that contain specific allergens, is helpful in both teaching kids with food allergies what they need to avoid and teaching others what foods their food allergic friends and classmates can't eat.
The first few times I read the book to the kids we spent about 30 minutes afterward discussing it. The illustrations are wonderful and the rhyming story is really cute. I highly recommend it.
