CLOSED The Princess and the Peanut package and a $25 Target Gift Card

The Princess and the Peanut

Having an allergic reaction after sleeping on a peanut

A fresh twist on a classic fairytale, author Sue Ganz-Schmitt’s The Princess and the Peanut: A Royally Allergic Tale tells of one peanut butter loving prince’s search for a real princess- finding that an allergic reaction to one minuscule peanut will set her apart from commoners. Children with food allergies will see their difference as special after reading this book, cool even.

 

With 6 million children diagnosed with food allergies in the U.S. today, more likely than not even kids without food allergies have friends or classmates who do, with peanut allergies being the most common. This book, with its fun storyline embedded with educational facts (and kid-friendly glossary at the end), is a great book for everyone, though it’s geared toward children 4-9.

 

I can’t decide if I enjoy Ganz-Schmitt’s fresh, well written story or Micah Chambers-Goldberg’s beautiful illustrations more.  See more of the fantastic illustrations inside the 38-page book.

 

Also included in this prize is Sue Ganz-Schmitt’s first book Even Superheroes Get Diabetes (Insulin Comics).  She wrote it when her neighbor was diagnosed at the age of 3 with Type 1 Diabetes. Wanting to help her friends, she searched for children’s books about Diabetes, then decided she would just have to write such a book herself.

 

Two winners will be sent a copy of The Princess and the Peanut and Even SuperHeroes Get Diabetes. One of these lucky winners will also receive a $25 Target gift card.

It is so important as parents to educate ourselves because what we serve our children to eat will impact them now and in the future.
