4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book for kids 3-8 years old with Food Allergies, November 28, 2009
This review is from: One Of The Gang: Nurturing the Souls of Children with Food Allergies (Paperback)
I have a 10 year old son with major, life threatening food allergies. I believe strongly in educating those around us as this is a way of life for us that others don't often understand or experience. It is also vitally important to educate and support children with and without food allergies so that they can understand that when you are living with a food allergy you need to make some adjustments in your life and social activities to keep yourself safe. Even though children have to do things a bit differently, they are no different inside their hearts and souls than anyone else. I was excited when I heard about Gina Clowes book, One of the Gang. My son and I immediately sat down and read it together after I received it in the mail. He is often excited to read things related to food allergies and to connect with others that are like him. We liked that this story was told in pictures as it gives you a connection to what a child experiences in a real-life situation. My son was older than the target audience for the book which is ages 3-8 years old. Although, he enjoyed the story and felt it would be very helpful for younger kids to read. His favorite part were the pictures at the end of the book where adults with food allergies were featured, some were celebrities and sports stars. His eyes brightened and he asked me, "Do these people all have food allergies?". I confirmed that, yes, they do and it was heartwarming to see him brighten up and realize that there were endless possibilities ahead of him for his future.
