    ©1999. By Ellen Weiner. Illustrated by Moss Freedman. This illustrated fictional story features a boy named Jeffrey, who begins to experience the physical symptoms of specific food allergies, including allergies to dairy and wheat products, corn, strawberries, and peanuts. The book provides a simple yet informative explanation of how food allergies impact the body, including colorful descriptions of allergy antibodies and histamine. The book contains several positive messages for children, including: kids with food allergies are no different than their peers; food allergies are not contagious; flavorful allergy-free snacks are available, and they can be shared with friends and classmates; and the importance of feeling good. It is the author's view that children are more willing to accept food restrictions when they are educated about their bodies, and the book also includes a message for parents, a kid's quiz, tips for teachers, and an allergy-free pizza recipe. For children ages 5-10. (Softcover; 28 pages.)
