This book is an EXCELLENT discussion guide in the form of a storybook that helps you, the parent, teach your child about their food allergies and what to do about them. I know many parents who have children with severe allergies, and as it happens, I developed a food allergy late in life --it can happen that way. So now I'm living the world of "no nuts, please!" and I totally sympathize with the important job you have to protect your child and teach him about avoiding food allergens. The book is a simple story of Kieran and his mom. Kieran eats granola and breaks out in hives. He goes to the hospital. Yes, he's allergic to nuts. Now, they have to learn what foods to avoid, about not sharing food, about epi-pens and about strategies to take part in activities where foods are served--bring snacks to share that are nut-free so you can take part. The best part of this book? Well, there are two best parts. The first are the illustrations, which are quite attractive and cheerful. I enjoyed the artwork. The second and maybe even better part is the guided discussion, where you can read the book with your child, include them in the story and then involve them in making themselves safe from food allergens. If you have a child who is allergic to something, this is a really great way to teach them about their special problem. I highly recommend this book.

This is the perfect book to give to a child newly diagnosed with a food allergy. It contains several important strategies to teach children and parents how to manage a food allergy. Using short, simple sentences, the author tells the story of how her son, Kieran was diagnosed with a food allergy after having a reaction to a snack. He was rushed to the hospital where they discovered his nut allergy. This book covers most of the basics including what an allergy is, what some symptoms could be, the importance of checking food labels, not sharing food with friends, and possibly carrying an EpiPen. In the last few pages, the author addresses the reader and asks if they have a food allergy and what they do to stay safe. The book concludes with a message about being loved and tips on staying healthy. The amount of information delivered clearly in a kid-friendly manner coupled with the attractive illustrations makes this book a standout among food allergy books.

This is a great book for children that illustrates the risk associated with food allergies. Being a mother of a child who is also allergic to tree nuts, I will read the book with my child and let him lead some discussions on his food allergies. It also shows other people the seriousness of the issue.
