Communication is an essential piece of any food allergen management strategy. Sharon Dempsey's new book "Can I tell you about my Peanut Allergy?" can help serve as a guide to opening up the lines of communication when dealing with a peanut allergy. Written from a young person's perspective, the book introduces you to Danny and the many scenarios he must face when living in a peanut-filled world while trying to avoid peanuts. The book illustrates the importance of advocating, communicating and being responsible for oneself while giving insight into helping a peanut-allergic individual manage their allergy and responding to potential allergic reactions. -- Jamie Kabourek, Registered Dietician, Resource Manager, Food Allergy Research and Resource Program, University of Nebraska
