Join author Erin Madras as she reads from her book Austin's Allergies.
Is it possible to be a ‘typical little boy’ if one has several life-threatening food allergies? Yes! As long as the little boy understands and is aware of ways to stay safe and healthy, it is very possible for him to still enjoy the things he loves to do—strum his guitar, enjoy the playground, play sports, go to birthday parties, and attend preschool! Austin describes the importance of acting quickly, the diligence to avoid allergen foods, and shares new tricks on what they can, also, do to help keep him safe.
