    A must-have for any person facing food allergies!

    I give this book to my child's teacher(s) every year. It is the best primer available for basic instruction and future reference on a subject that is not easily understood. Even when people don't initially "get it" (that a snack can kill a child), they can learn almost all they need to know from this book. I will keep buying them every year and keep one at our home for caregivers.
