Wow...the illustrations in this book are so lifelike! I like this book because it is truly designed to teach those with or without allergies. What this family must go through with both their children being highly allergic to many every day foods. I recommend this as a teaching tool for other parents to know how this family handles birthdays, holidays and school! Teachers, doctors as well. Olivia
