Dairy Free and Happy is a children's book directed towards children with a dairy allergy. I would say that the target age range is in early elementary school.
I was extremely interested in this book since my youngest daughter (as well as myself) has a dairy and gluten allergy. She had to go gluten and dairy free while she was in elementary school, and there was some challenging times getting to understand how food impacted her body.
I read this book with my daughter and asked for her opinion. She said that the book said the information that she had needed to know when she was younger. She also said that it was done in a way that was easy to understand, although the first part of the book confused her a bit at first.
I think that her review of the book is perfect. There is a lot of useful information that is perfectly directed at young children. It shows what food to picks, emphasis eating whole foods, and treats having a dairy allergy as something that is not stigmatizing.
As a parent, the only aspect of the book that I thought was missing was helping a child to understand why dairy hurts their body. This could be very different for every child. However, I think the book would have benefited from at least one page about how dairy makes you feel yucky. I really wish that I had this book when my daughter was younger.
