Living Without's Favorite Books: The First Time

A rash-spotted face isn’t charming, particularly if it’s your child. But cheeks inflamed with hives are the start of a charming children’s book, The Day I Met the Nuts (Earth Day), by Mary Rand Hess with illustrations by Candice Hartsough McDonald. Here’s the story of a little boy’s first encounter with a nut allergy, from his initial reaction and the rush to the doctor’s office to what happens at school and acceptance by the wider community. This easy-to-read book is a fun take on a serious topic from a writer who is, by the way, allergic to nuts. The Day I Met the Nuts helps little ones come to terms with a food allergy.
