I brought the book" Aneil has a food allergy" by Jillain Powell from the library. It is a non-fiction picture book that is very well done. It is written like a children's science book with terms explained and extra facts in sidebars. The photographs are appealing and it also mentions that " The worst thing about having a food allergy is that you can't always eat what everyone else is eating. Sometimes I have to miss a party is we don't know what the food will be like. Mom or Dad will stay home with me." (Aneil is allergic to nuts)

The book is described on the back cover is :
follow a day in the life of real children with different disabilities and show how they, their family and friends cope with day to day situations. In Aneil has a food allergy, Aneil tells us how to check food labels and shows how he would deal with an allergic reaction

My four year old has asked me to read it over and over.so I thought it was worth sharing.
there is also one about asthma

four year old : anaphlaxsis to nut/peanut asthma allergic to dogs, cats, trees and grass

I remember this book! I like that the photos make it seem a little more grown up that the Alexander series. :)

I was just thinking about kids' allergy books last night. Was cleaning and came upon a couple I really like/recommend:

- Gina Clowes's little photo book with captions called "One of the Gang". It's written to make allergic kids feel "normal", while gently reminding them of the rules, but stressing all the fun things a kid can do with friends. Very positive. Available through Amazon.

- Nicole Smith's Allie the Allergic Elephant. See it here: http://www.allergicchild.com/Alliebook.htm
