Even though the book focuses on children with gluten intolerance, children with other dietary restrictions will be able to relate to the characters in this story.
Here's some more kudos for the book...
"This bright and colorful picture book sheds light on certain childhood allergies. . .Teachers will find this book to be a great introduction to allergies, to embrace acceptance, and show respect."

I've been having a lot of fun lately with the Procreate app on my iPad. This is a scene that I saw on my drive this morning. It was very cold (8F) and this house looked so cozy. So when I got home I painted a quick sketch. Remember no matter how tempting it is - never paint and drive!

Here's a fun craft that looks almost good enough to eat. In fact, my son picked one up before he realized it was felt! Here is what you will need...
- Craft Felt (tan or color of your choice)
- "Glue Dots" or a hot glue gun
- White paper
Cut a circle of felt approximately 4 1/2" in diameter. (A large can works well as a template.)
Fold the felt circle in half like a taco.
Push in on the center bottom of the taco as you bring the corners toward each other as shown.
Attach the two sides that you pinched together with a "Glue Dot" or a dab of hot glue.
Cut a strip of paper about 1/2" wide and 2 1/2" long. Write a fortune on the strip of paper and slip it into one side of the cookie. Now make a batch for someone you love.
