Hey there -

I have lots of English allergy books for kids, but I'm finding that there isn't much in the way of French. We have
- Les Noix C'est Pas Pour Moi (No Nuts for Me!)
- SOS Allergies

And that's about it. I think the AQAA sells one about a little girl in daycare but other than that, I haven't heard of any.

Anyone know of any others?

K.

Hi Karen,

I did some research and found these children's books published in France.

Dis-moi pourquoi j'ai une allergie aux poils de lapin: Histoire de Camille
Catherine Saussine

Dis-moi pourquoi j'ai une allergie au pollen: Histoire de Thomas
Catherine Saussine

Les oeufs n'aiment pas Margaux : Margaux a une allergie alimentaire
Martine Herve-Guillot

They are available through Amazon France http://www.amazon.fr Delivery to Canada is available.

I found this book on Amazon Canada:

Allergiques comme Clara!
by Pakita , Jean-Philippe Chabot
Une nouvelle de la classe d'Agathe fait une crise d'allergie dans la cour de récréation après avoir mangé un biscuit au chocolat qui contient des amandes. Pendant qu'elle se fait soigner, les élèves déclinent les uns après les autres leurs menus bobos ou maladies réciproques. Agathe se sent exclue puisqu'elle n'a rien pour faire partie de la bande des Blessés Malades Courageux.
http://www.amazon.ca

This site lists some more children's books. Scroll to "Allergies"

The author of Peter Can't Eat Peanuts is considering having it translated into French (at my request).

See http://www.access4allergickids.com/Peter_Cant_Eat_Peanuts.html for details about the English version.

Would anyone here be interested in a French version? Let me know either here or by PM.

K.

Hi,

I would love to translate those books. I am a translator with 20 years of experience and I also have a daughter with allergies. If the author is looking for a translator, please leave a note on this forum and I will respond with my contact info.

Thank you,

Nicole

I was surfing and came across the following...it's not a book but a video.

Never Take a Chance / Pas de risque à prendre

Just saw the post about the "Never Take a Chance / Pas de risque à prendre" video.

Unfortunately Allergy Essentials doesn't exist anymore (sniff, sniff, boo-hoo), but the video is available from the AQAA.

See http://www.aqaa.qc.ca/produits/materiel.htm.

We have it, and I've used it in my oldest's school as an educational tool. It's okay, and not too long, and little kids seem to like it, but... I don't like that the allergic kid is the one that looks like a total nerd. Is that really necessary?? :?

Here are two GREAT recipy books in french.... available on this great website....
http://www.dejouerlesallergies.com/archives/000005.html

I bought both (one for complete meals and the other for desserts) after a conference the author gives acrosse Quebec (conference is also available in english now I think...).

Even I, with multiple allergies...I'll be able, after some more modifications, to make some of the recipies for myself....

They also contain great info about allergies, substitutions, etc...

They are great recipe books, I agree. Marie-Josée Bettez has done an amazing job with them.

I actually gave the English version of her presentation in Ottawa in April, and we are hoping to do one in Toronto in the fall. I will post about it when things are firmed up.

Stay tuned! :)

Wow!..I attended the one in Québec city a month ago...Then She was talking about you?!....

I almost cried at the beginning....Another young mom was there and turned out she had developped the same allergies (and more, and more severe), the same way I did....in our 30's....out of nowhere....consulted the same $%$/?!!!! allergist who told us it was all in our head... She found a great one since...and gave me his name...

I found great informations and advice at that conference...ranging from trusted allergists to allergy conscious butchers, etc....

A definite must for anyone dealing with allergies!!!!
