Note from the Author:

"This book is dedicated to my nephew, Seth, whose peanut allergy inspired it," explains Zeller. "I wanted to write a book that brought awareness to food allergies with characters children could identify with. It is my hope that in the future, more programs will become available that will help parents, teachers, day care workers, peers, and those throughout the community help our youngest food allergic children."

Read an Excerpt

Naniekyns had allergies, some severe, to most of the plants and leaves in the forest. She was sad that she had to miss out on the delicious tastings of sunflower petals, four-leaf clovers, and dandelion leaves.

Every time she was invited to a birthday party, Mama Bug would gently tell Naniekyns, "Honey, you can't have any of the sunflower petals crispy delight because you are allergic." And each time, Naniekyns would hang her head in sadness.

"But I did bring fresh grass blades for you!" Mama Bug would say excitedly. Naniekyns would crunch sadly on the plain and boring grass blades while her friends savored the delicious sunflower petals crispy delight, which had been roasted to perfection in the hot sun.
