Children\'s Story on Peanut Allergies
I have written a children's story on peanut allergies for my son to take to preschool. It is called "Allie the Allergic Elephant".
The book is geared toward preschool age through first grade. It explains why an allergic child will say "no thank you" to foods offered, what an allergic reaction looks like (hives, coughing, swelled lips) and which foods "hide" peanuts.
I have received rave reviews of the book and the illustrations. Imagine an elephant with hives!
