Cody the Allergic Cow
, by Nicole Smith, illustrated by Maggie Nichols
A cow allergic to milk? Cody is a young cow with a loving family and a passion for soccer, and he happens to have a dairy allergy. He wears an allergy bracelet, knows to bring his own snacks to games, learns how to identify common milk-based foods, and remembers that having an allergic reaction is no fun. His mom carries epinephrine in her bag in case of an accidental ingestion. A simple book for young ones to enjoy and learn from.
Allie the Allergic Elephant
by Nicole Smith, illustrated by Maggie Nichols
Allie is a cute young elephant who is allergic to peanuts! With simple and engaging language and cartoon-like drawings, little kids will love Allie and her story. I read it to my boys, 4 and 6, and it prompted a discussion about symptoms of an allergic reaction in a very matter-of-fact way. I appreciate how the book describes Allie as special and unique because of her allergies.
