I received a food allergy book review request from Priyanka Talwar, the author of you can’t always tell.
you can’t always tell is about how a young boy with food allergies who explains to a new friend why he can’t eat the cupcakes that she made. This is an important topic that all children who have food allergies should be well rehearsed in doing, which makes this book such a great tool.
I like the book because it is straight and to the point, easy to read, and short enough that it doesn’t lose the readers interest. Let’s face it, we all know that little kids don’t have the longest attention span! I also like it because it touches on a subject that is important for kids with food allergies (and their friends) to learn, never assuming that a food is safe!
I would recommend this book for teachers to read to their classrooms at the beginning of the year as a good way to open up dialogue about food allergies in the classroom.
Food Allergy Book, You Can’t Always Tell
Thank you again, Priyanka, for sending me a copy of this great children’s book. I’ll be donating it to our elementary school for the teachers to use in their classrooms to further educate our town’s children about keeping our kids with food allergies safe.
