I love reading, and while I like a nice thick book, sometimes reading a children’s book to my little sister can be a lot of fun too, especially when it has such a good message.
Today I read the book The Princess and the Peanut Allergy by Wendy McClure.
It’s an adorable little book perfect for kids learning to read. It would also be a great addition to an elementary classroom or school library to teach young children about food allergies. It’s about a little girl who is trying to throw a party, but the cake she wants has peanuts. Unfortunately her friend has a peanut allergy.
Even though its a simple story, I find the premise wonderful. It promotes tolerance and awareness of people with allergies. I really wish that there had been more story books about children living with food allergies around the time when I was a kid.
If people my age had read things like this when they were very young, maybe they would be more tolerant and nice towards people with allergies.
Even though its a short and sweet book, it carries with it a powerful message that I hope will stick with the kids that read it.
Until next time!
