The Pesky Peanut


This small picture book for children carries a big message about food allergies. According to the CDC, food allergies affect over 10 million Americans, and almost 4% of America's children.

In this revised 2nd edition, newly published by Chatwin’s Occidental Square Press imprint, author Katie Corl and illustrator Melanie Fix use story and image to help kids understand this complex issue.

How DO you teach children about food allergies, whether their own or those of people around them? This charming little picture book is the answer. It teaches an important lesson about food allergies by telling the story of Kelly and the pesky peanut. Kelly's family discovered he was allergic to peanuts at his first birthday party, when his birthday cake caused an allergic reaction requiring a visit from the paramedics. From that moment on, Kelly's parents were careful to make sure Kelly never came into contact with peanuts in any form. Extremely, extra, very, very, super-dooper careful.

But as the story of The Pesky Peanut shows, shows, sometimes careful parents aren't enough. Effective prevention requires education and understanding. This illustrated story takes a mysterious, scary subject and makes it easy to understand.
