The BugaBees by Amy Recob

Hi!  My name is Gavin.  I am 9 years old and have food allergies.  I'm going to tell you about a book called the Bugabees: Friends With Food Allergies by Amy Recob.

The Bugabees is a story about 8 friends that have individual food allergies.  These food allergies get in the way sometimes but that does not stop them from having a good time.

I think that this is a great book I hope you like it too!           

Does your child have a favorite food allergy book?

The Peanut Free Cafe
by Gloria Koster

Peanut Free Cafe by Gloria Koster

This is one of the first children's books that we found at our local library on the subject of food allergies.  It's a cute story about a new student, Grant, who is allergic to peanuts.  He sits at a peanut free table in the cafeteria but ends up being lonely...until one of his new friends comes up with a clever solution.  The Peanut Free Cafe was born!
