Children's Food Allergy Author wins Mom's Choice Award 2013



Stephanie Sorkin has a degree in English Literature and lives in New York. As a mom of a child with multiple food allergies, she wrote Nutley, about an adorable squirrel who doesn't let his nut allergy slow him down. He inspires children with food allergies to live their lives to the fullest.  She is proud to donate 100% of the book proceeds to +Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) because she wants to give back to the food allergy community so we will be closer to answers and solutions!
While allergies have become so common in so many classrooms, this book is a great tool to inform students and parents.  I love the writing and illustrations which are so easy to identify with. The fact that the author and her daughter collaborated to write the book is so special. I highly recommend it as a resource for discussion about food allergies in any home or elementary classroom setting.
So join Nutley on his journey to stay healthy and safe with the help of his friends while supporting advocacy & research about food allergies.
