    Great Book!

    Love this book, it makes my little princess see that she is not the only one who carries and epipen and is horribly allergic to peanuts. This was her favorite Christmas gift this year! Book is well done and has an index in the back with terms for those not familiar with allergies.

    What a touching book! My daughter, Jade, at the age of 4-years-o

    What a touching book! My daughter, Jade, at the age of 4-years-old had a reaction to tree nuts. We found out in May, 2012 when she went into anaphylaxis within minutes of eating a piece of walnut. We never heard the seriousness of food allergies, sure we have heard of “food allergy” but I never knew the in and outs of this dangerous disability.
    Did you know that there are millions with food allergies, and the number seems to rise daily. No one understands why, and research is still going to figure out how to stop this epidemic.
    I absolutely love that Sue got to re-create Princes and the Pea to help bring awareness to food allergies, instead of the pea it is a peanut. When a prince loses hope of finding his perfect princess, a princess appears on his doorstep looking for shelter from the storm. To test to see if the princess is indeed real, the queen places a peanut between the princess’ tower of mattresses. But this princess doesn’t have trouble sleeping, instead she awakens to an allergic reaction!
    The Princess and the Peanut reflects what children today are dealing with and also supports children, like Jade, who have allergies. Within the book is a food allergy guide for adults, and kid-friendly allergy definitions.
    I absolutely fell in love with the book before I had a chance to read it to my daughter. Yeah, yeah, I know you are not suppose to “fall for the cover” but the illustrations are delightfully phenomenal!

    My Review: Sue Ganz-Schmitt has become well known for addressin

    My Review:

    Sue Ganz-Schmitt has become well known for addressing alot of issues that our children have to face on a regular basis and this book proves to be no different. This is a classic fairy tale brought forward in time to meet today's challenges. It is a spin on the classic The Princess and the Pea. Except in this fairy tale the pea is replaced with a peanut which in turn proves dreadful for the princess. It just so happens that the prince is looking for a princess to marry so some changes may just be in order for this royal family.
