Penny and the Peanut
In the book “Penny and the Peanut,” Penny and Madison are two best friends that always have fun together after school. Unexpectedly, Penny has an allergic reaction after eating Peanut Butter cookies with her friend Madison. Through this experience, Penny learns the importance of recognizing the signs of a severe allergic reaction to help save her friend!
Our mission is to help parents and teachers to educate all young kids on the importance of food allergies and to increase their sensitivity and compassion towards those who face this critical illness daily.
I wrote "Penny and the Peanut" as a medical guide to help all kids and parents with and without food allergies to understand this life-threatening condition. The book illustrates to children what to do in the event of an emergency in the absence of an adult to help save lives.
