Overview

Families of children with food allergies know that this invisible condition requires constant vigilance. The necessity of keeping these children safe cannot be overstated; however, their emotional well-being is equally important.

Food is used in almost every type of celebration, and is often a focal point of these events. Even in day-to-day life, food is everywhere. Children who have food allergies may be excluded from many of these activities. Some seem to take it in stride, while others feel varying degrees of sadness, anger, or fear.

This book was meant to shed light on the emotional side and to help children cope with these challenges. It also serves as a reminder that even though this condition must be managed on a daily basis, it need not stop them from enjoying a wonderful life and becoming everything they were meant to be.

I hope this book will validate the feelings these children may have and encourage them to talk about them. It is also my sincere desire that some of the words and photographs will allow others a glimpse at the way that these children experience the world.

Maybe next time, you will be one of the grown-ups who allow an allergic child to be "one of the gang!"

    Different from the Rest!

    My son's teacher read this book to the class and they all loved it. Once they saw the pictures of the famous athletes and celebrities, the kids acted like it was cool to have food allegies. Very nice for my son!!<BR/><BR/>Basically, the book shows the kids that everyone deals with something (ie some kids wear glasses, etc) and then it goes over some of the things kids with allergies have to do (not share food, bring own snack etc) but none of the scary stuff that I've seen in other books.<BR/><BR/>This one is more in line with supporting them in a very warm and loving way--it's very different from the other kids allergy books. <BR/><BR/>My son loves these pictures and loved them even more when I read that they are actually pictures of kids and adults with food allergies.<BR/><BR/>It has really opened my non-allergic daughter's eyes too. I think it's made her more compassionate toward her brother. <BR/><BR/>The tone of the book is so encouraging. We love the pictures of the kids having fun and that the books explains how food allergies wont get in the way of your dreams. I also really loved all of the happy pictures with kids and their friends and sharing safe treats together. What a nice message for everyone!

    You'll love this!

    I had no idea there were so many celebrities with food allergies!<BR/> I LOVE the pictures--especially the ones of the famous athletes (Jerome Bettis) doctors, skaters and musicians. What a terrific example to show children who have food allergies. <BR/><BR/>It's good that the book reminds them that they need to have their own snack or cupcake at parties, but it also reminds them that is just one part of their whole lives. <BR/><BR/>This will be a tremendous tool to help kids cope with their allergies and help them understand that there are many others just like them.
