This is Little Brother and I am doing this review because I wanted book mail. Just like Bridget, I have food allergies but I am not peanut allergic. We were sent this book to review because we are kids!
Eppie is an elephant excited for her first day of school. She is also allergic to peanuts and is worried about how the other kids will act. I worried about how kids would react to mine. They think it is weird I don’t eat pizza or ice cream at school.
Eppie makes friends but at lunch, her friends can’t sit with her because they have peanuts. Eppie is sad. The next day, her friends sit with her because they brought safe lunches.
This book helps kids learn about food allergies and being a friend to a kid with allergies. It is nice to see the friends change their lunches so they can sit by Eppie.
I recommend this to kids going back to school, especially if they are at a no nut school.
