The Princess and the Peanut Allergy

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!

  1. What a great find, Gary. It is a simple story, but it demonstrates tolerance and kindness between friends. Friends want to act in ways that protect their friends and make them comfortable and happy. It is instinctual. That’s what friends do. When this behavior is learned at a young age it is natural.
