A couple weeks ago a friend from my childhood reached out to me on Instagram. I have known this amazing woman for most of my life and she just recently wrote an adorable book and wanted to see if I would be willing to take a look. Well, here we are a couple weeks later and we have read Joanna Banana nearly every single day and it is an awesome book for kids with food allergies!
Who is Joanna Banana?
Joanna Banana is a book about a little girl named Ruthie and her friend “Joanna Banana” and how they work through Ruthie’s food allergies. Joanna Banana goes on a journey to find ingredients that she can swap into Ruthie’s favorite recipes so they won’t make her tummy hurt anymore. It is an adorable storyline and the illustrations are awesome.
Book for Kids with Food Allergies?
My children have really enjoyed this book and although neither of them have food allergies, their mama does and many of their classmates do. They have been much more cognizant of what people can and cannot eat and have been really sweet about coming up with various ingredients that I could switch out in my own recipes. I have truly enjoyed how this book takes food allergies and makes them simple to understand and easy for kids to embrace. My friend really outdid herself and I am so lucky we were able to check out a copy of Joanna Banana!
Joanna Banana is available on Amazon right now, but I have an extra copy that I would LOVE to giveaway to one of my readers. Simply enter the rafflecopter below for your chance at an AUTOGRAPHED copy of this adorable book!
