Barrett's Unusual Ice Cream Party Review and Giveaway

Giveaway is closed.

I am so excited about this.  My dear friend, Michelle King, has written a book.  Not just any book, but a children's book about food intolerances.  Barrett's Unusual Ice Cream Party tells the story that our food intolerant kids are facing on a daily basis, and it lets them know that it's okay--actually it's pretty cool, in fact--that they are different.

I read this book last night with my boys. It's extra special to them, because we know Michelle and her family. But as we were reading it, I think they both realized that school is okay, even with homepacked lunches and different treats than everyone else.  This book explained it better in a simple story, than I've been able to do since our diets have changed.  Our kids our special, and they are pretty cool, too. Thanks, Michelle, for explaining it so well in the book.

Here is the description from the back 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.

If you have kids with food intolerances, this is a great book, in helping them accept their situation and thrive with it.  You can buy the book for $9.99 or $7.99 for a digital copy....and you can also enter to win a copy from me!
