"Penny and the Peanut's" Foreword
My name is Dr. Sara Anvari, M.D., MSc, FAAAAI Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, and the Director of Clinical Trials of the Food Allergy Program at Texas Children’s Hospital. I specialize in allergy and immunology, and pediatrics. I have been awarded Top Doctor Rising Star consecutively in 2018-2020, and Texas Top Doctor 2020 and 2021.
In my practice, I diagnose, treat, and educate children and their families about ways to manage allergic reactions. I promote select strategies and tools to assist families in monitoring their diet to help avoid foods that can trigger an allergic reaction.
“Penny and the Peanut” is a useful tool because of its educational content, diverse audience appeal, inclusive character representation, and pertinent message to children and parents who are concerned about peanut allergies. In my experience, comprehensive messages like the ones found in “Penny and the
Peanut” teaches children the importance of recognizing allergic reactions and identifying symptoms of peanut allergies.
“Penny and the Peanut,” is a fun children’s book which offers child accessible language important to teaching clear life-saving strategies in the event of a medical emergency in a manner that can be easily retained. The colorful, soft scenery, and illustrative pictures are friendly and inviting for all to enjoy. This added value offers success for teachers introducing “Penny and the Peanut” to students in their classrooms. Moreover, parents during family time can read this book to their children to understand its important life-saving message.
“Penny and the Peanut” is both a practical instructional tool and a pleasing narrative supporting sensitivity to children and families defeating the challenges of allergies.
