Living Without Books: Hold the Cheese Please, A Story for Children about Lactose Intolerance
Food issues can range from uncomfortable (lactose intolerance) to deadly (peanut anaphylaxis). Kids with allergies and sensitivities need to make smart, safe decisions and friends and family need to be supportive. Here are two new children’s books that can help. Hold the Cheese Please, A Story for Children about Lactose Intolerance by Frank J. Sileo, PhD, and The Peanut Butter Jam by Elizabeth Sussman Nassau (both from Health Press) contain universal lessons for food-sensitive kids and the people who surround them. Find out what happens when our heroes break the rules and eat the forbidden. And how they—and friends and family—come to grips with the consequences. Nicely illustrated with stories written to keep your child’s attention, these books are good for tuck-them-in reading at bedtime—or any time.
