Review Quotes

Penny and the Peanut is a fantastic way to convey a potentially life-saving message to children with and without food allergies and their families. -Dr. Sara Anvari

Penny and the Peanut by Micaa Thomas should be in all school libraries. Both children and adults will be drawn to this book because of its vivid illustrations and the importance of the topic. As an educator, I've encountered many children with life threatening allergies and know the serious consequences that can result. This book contains mitigating information; get it!

My daughter has a dairy allergy. She is 7 years old and was able to read this book. Even with an allergy, she did not realize the importance of other allergies until this book. It also helped her feel like she is not alone in this food world when her friends get cake at a party and she can not or has to plan ahead and bring something different. The author composed an excellent way of informing all readers about being mindful of others when dealing with food and potential allergies. Always safe to ask.
