This is a great book for young kids to tell them a bit about allergies. It has nice rhymes, engaging pictures and a very simple story about Max, a monkey, who can't eat bananas like his friends but eats mangoes instead. It is not technical or complicated and does not make a big deal about allergies.

My son, in kindergarten, does not have allergies, but his classmates sit at a separate table in class and in the cafeteria, so this was useful to help him understand that kids with allergies are just like regular kids, having fun like Max the monkey, but can't eat everything like other kids.

In the book, there is one picture where Max is sitting at the table with friends eating bananas while he is eating a mango, and we talked about why his friends in school can't do the same, so that was a good discussion. (It is because peanut allergens, unlike other food allergens, travel in the air, so you need more separation.)

I highly recommend this book for younger kids with siblings who have allergies or classmates - how to keep our friends safe!

I bought this for my two boys (6 & 3) and one for their school. My boys LOVE it! Neither of my boys have food allergies, but a lot of their friends do. It teaches them about food allergies without being to medical or scientific. The colors and pictures are brilliant!

I have three young children who each have friends and/or classmates with severe food allergies. This is an excellent book to read to them re: a simple approach to discussing food allergies. I love how Max is a fun, playful monkey who just happens to have an allergy to bananas so he eats mangos instead. This book is a great tool to show young children the basics of eating with friends who have allergies (ie. wash hands, don't touch someone else's food, etc.) My almost 3 year old daughter brings this book to me to read often. Love the illustrations, too!

Cute story about food allergies - my 6 year old loved it! It's such an encouragement for my son who has life threatening food allergies to have/read books about others who experience the same things he does. Thank you so much for making him feel just a little less alone! I suggested our school library purchase one for our school as well.

This is an adorable book on food allergies that my daughter's preschool class all loved. Really helpful when trying to teach friends of allergic children about food allergies.
