Got this book for my son who has severe food allergies, what I didnt know was this book is about a boy with wheat, milk allergies. So there is a part at the end of the book about how the boy is diffrent now but he will soon grow out of the allergies and be just the same as all other kids. We had to skip this page because son will never grow out of his nut allergy just wish I'd know what the book said prior to buying it.

I ordered this book in print AND ebook because of some of the other reviews for it. My son is allergic to gluten and dairy and this boy is allergic to wheat and milk (perfect!)... but I was SO disappointed! I was reading it to him and we got halfway through and the story started to not make sense. The pages weren't even in the CORRECT ORDER! Don't waste your time or money with this one.. there are better amazing allergy books out there.

The tips for teachers is nice at the back, but the book makes it seem like you just get sick from your allergies...food allergies are life threatening. One part says you should let a food allergy kid go to the bathroom more, if a child us reacting they potentially need life saving medication. Disappointed with this book as it seems to minimize the severity of food allergies.

This book is one of a series on various medical issues and disabilities. The good features are that there is a quiz at the end, teacher tips and resources. Another good feature is that the book emphasizes similarities between children. I do feel as if it goes into too much detail about the biology of things: histamine, antibodies, etc. I think there are better books on allergies out there.

My daughter's platform is food allergy awareness, she will be going around to local schools talking with grades Pre-k-2nd grade about food allergies. She said she really liked this book and cannot wait to share it with the students.

This book is good for introducing food allergies to a class or friends in elementary school. It's very simple and talks about being accepting of others differences from a food allergic child's perspective.

My daughter is allergic to Dairy, Egg and Tree Nuts. This book was a great book to show her and her Kindergarten class that she may have allergies but is still a normal little child just like everyone else.
