Does any one know of any good books for a 3 year old to help educated about his PA/TNA?

Look for the Alexander the Elephant books. They are available on the FAAN website:
Mom to 7 yr old PA/TNA daughter and 4 yr old son who is allergic to eggs.

No Nuts for Me is online - you can watch it with your 3 y.o. My DD loves it.

I love the online video No Nuts For Me. However, I haven't shown it to my 3 year old because I'm not volunteering that the epi-pen involves a needle unless he asks about it. He knows it's medicine that would help him if he ever ate peanuts by accident, but he has no idea how it gets into him. At 3, I think he'd become very afraid of the epi-pen if he knew, so I'm not telling unless he asks.

I second the recommendation of the Alexander books. My child has Alexander Goes To A Birthday Party. Since he was two, he's been reciting this book's example to refuse food offered by someone. He copies it word by word!

I've written the book "Mommy, Is This Safe to Eat?" for preschoolers and their friends. It teaches children with food allergies to always ask before they eat something. It has lots of fun pictures of a preschooler Ricky.
My son also has enjoyed "Peter Can't Eat Peanuts".
Both books are available on

my son liked peanut butter pickle when he was that age. I liked it as it helps teach them to ask if food is safe and explains on a childs level about cross contamination etc.
