Michelle King and her three children are all gluten intolerant. After watching her children go through heart-wrenching situations because of their intolerance, she looked for books to help them cope.
When she didn’t find what she was looking for, she wrote a book—Barrett’s Unusual Ice Cream Party.
After reading the book, I think it could be a helpful resource for parents of children who have any food intolerance or allergy. Particularly if they have problems at school since that is where the story takes place. It would also be a good resource for teachers or support groups.
Here is an excerpt from the beginning of the book:
‘That will make you sick.’
This is one of the first phrases six-year-old Barrett learns because he has celiac sprue, which means he can’t eat cake and bread or even drink milk.
Barrett is embarrassed of how different he is from the other kids in his class…until a new kid who also has unusual allergies comes to school.
At Barrett’s Unusual Ice Cream Party, Barrett and his classmates learn that what makes them different makes them special.
There are a lot of colorful pictures in the book similar to the book cover you see above.
You can purchase Barrett’s Unusual Ice Cream Party as a paperback for $9.99 or as a digital download for $7.99.
