The Pesky Peanut - Book Review

(Image from Amazon)
My grandaddy was a farmer his whole life.
I remember getting peanuts and corn and all that yummy food fresh when I was growing up.
So, I never really gave it any thought about people being allergic to peanuts...
They had always been around and it just never crossed my mind!
So, imagine my wonder when I had Broxton and they said just one of the reasons for not introducing peanuts early in life was because of peanut allergies.

Thankfully for us, he is not allergic, but there are many people out there that are!
I was happy to have the chance to review The Pesky Peanut Book and share it with you.

The author of the book write it after dealing with peanut allergies with her son.
Now, I hate that she had to deal with this, but at the same time, I am thankful that she wrote a book to share the information with all of us.

The book starts with Kelly eating birthday cake...
How something like a birthday cake could lead to the knowledge of this just yet again shows how much I still have to learn...
I never would have even thought about that, until reading the book...
But I can tell you, after reading it...
I totally understand the severity of it and I now see why Five Guys Burger and Fries has signs posted on their door (BEFORE YOU EVEN ENTER) about the peanuts in their place...
What a way to look out!
It makes me wonder if someone in their family has the same allergy...

Anyways, back to the book.
I liked how it was informative, but also written on a child's level!
The best part to me was when they realized that Kelly had never even seen a peanut...
As allergic as he was, he did not even know what it was he was allergic to!

This was a great book, actually I think it should be available at all libraries to help kids both with and without the allergy more aware.
I believe that it would also be great for parents that are trying to explain it to their children!
Once again, for the one with the allergy, as well as the siblings that need to understand the severity!

Don't forget, you can follow The Pesky Peanut on facebook and twitter!

  1. Maybe I should read this and get some ideas about Grant's rash lately!

  2. I love books that are kindof grownup subjects but written for children's levels!
