Synopsis:

Provides clear, coherent information about allergies on a level that children can understand.  The explanation provided can also be useful for teens and adults.  Chapter titles include: What can it be?, Making a diagnosis, The big truth, anaphylaxis, Why am I allergic?, Treating allergies and New advances in allergy treatment.  The book’s end matter includes statistics, list of resources, a glossary and an index.

Comments:

This is a good resource for anyone wanting to learn about allergies, whether it’s because they have them, need to do a report or are just curious.  It would be a good choice if a teacher wanted his/her class to understand allergies and why some classmates need to avoid peanuts, eggs, wheat, etc. It also explained anaphylaxis, cross contamination and allergy-alert dogs.

 

Note:

I was also very impressed by two other True Books that came in today.  The first is titled Cancer and the second is titled Autism.  Both were written by Ann O. Squire, the author who wrote this book.
