Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jennie DeGenaro
It amazes everyone at Nutley School when Grant, a new student, is allergic to peanut butter. He cannot sit at the table where anyone is eating peanut butter. The first day Grant has to eat alone because most of the children have brought peanut butter in their lunches. Simon, one of the students, loves peanut butter and cannot imagine anyone who cannot eat it. Simon suggests to the principal that setting up a fun table, peanut butter free, would cause children to want to sit there. The principal arranges for baskets of popcorn and a movie to be provided for the "Peanut-Free Cafe." No child can sit there if peanut butter is in the lunch box. Simon loves peanut butter so much, but he asks his mother to fix anything for his lunch except peanut butter. He gets to join the fun table with Tilly's Ten Bean Chili. After school and on week-ends, Simon still eats lots of peanut butter. The last page is a message from Dr. Scott H. Sicherer from Mount Sinai School who explains the seriousness of allergies in children. The children in Nutley School demonstrate compassion for a new student who has a serious problem.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-The most popular food at Nutley School is peanut butter, and Simon eats it on a bagel every day. Then a new student who has a peanut allergy comes to the school. Principal Filbert makes a peanut-free lunch table, and anyone who has a peanut-free lunch can eat there. Grant sits there alone. Simon suggests that they make the table a fun place, and the school starts a Peanut-Free Cafe that features snacks, arts and crafts, and a movie for the admission of a peanut-free lunch. Simon can't participate because he is unable to give up his favorite food. Finally he convinces himself to eat something else so that he can join his friends, but after school and on weekends he still enjoys peanut butter. The story addresses several important topics, all with a lighthearted touch. Cocca-Leffler's humorous and exuberant illustrations make the book fun. An informative and colorful selection, told in a nonthreatening way that kids will relate to.-Debbie Stewart Hoskins, Grand Rapids Public Library, MI Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Allergies to peanuts can kill and Koster and Cocca-Leffler demonstrate these dangers with brightness and feeling, using Simon and his multicultural classmates as foils because, guess what their favorite lunch food is. Enter Grant, a new student with the peanut allergy. He dramatically mimes choking, eyes squeezed, tongue stuck out, "If I eat just one peanut or anything made with peanut oil, I can't breathe." Grant explains he has to have a shot immediately and then tells them that peanut butter was not allowed in his last school. Simon and his principal thoughtfully consider what to do and the solution becomes much more fun than experiencing the joys of peanut butter. The final note comes from the Jaffe Food Allergy Institute, an appropriate end for the only bibliotherapeutic picture book about peanut allergies. An attractive package with a heavy mission that manages to keep its balance. (Picture book. 4-6)
