The Gluten Connection: How Gluten Sensitivity May Be Sabotaging Your Health – And What You Can Do to Take Control Now

The Princess and the Peanut: A Royally Allergic Tale

by Sue Ganz-Schmitt and illustrated by Micah Chambers-Goldberg

This is a good children’s book that I was just introduced to by the author and it is sold on amazon. She sent me a pdf to review it for free. I would like to add this to our list of recommedations on our site.

I like this book because it is a book with a storyline to entertain the reader, not a boring “text” book. While it is a childrens’ “fairy-tale,” it informs of symptoms, seriousness of allergic reactions, and what to do if and when one occurs, without the reader realizing they are learning. I recommend this book for kids and their parents; with and without allergies!
