Overview


This story reassures kids who suffer from allergies, letting them know that they aren't alone. They learn the value of avoiding contact with certain materials and staying away from certain foods that trigger allergic reactions in their bodies. Most important, they learn that allergies can be coped with and their effects minimized. This is a new title in the appealing "A First Look At. . ." series. These books encourage preschool and early-grades children to explore their feelings and talk to parents or other trusted elders about things that bother them. Some problems, like visits to the dentist, are passing and minor and can be solved with relative ease. Others, like dealing with allergies, can range from passing annoyances to something more serious. In all cases, children are encouraged to follow parental and medical advice so that they can engage in normal children's activities. The books feature child-friendly color illustrations on every page. An advice to parents section follows each story.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2

Straightforward explanations for newly independent readers. The books provide helpful information and reassurance about common health concerns. The large, colorful cartoon illustrations are active and depict children of various ethnicities and both genders. The first book addresses the purpose of dental visits, what to expect, the dental exam and tooth cleaning, and cavities. The second title covers the causes and effects of allergies and treatments and reassures youngsters that they don't have to be left out of school activities. Sidebars in each book ask questions about children's personal experiences and thoughts, which can be used as discussion starters. Each title ends with an extensive note to parents, with practical advice for lessening anxiety about going to the dentist and helping children cope with allergies. Solid additions for most collections.-Lynda Ritterman, formerly at Atco Elementary School, NJ
