Bentley Goes to School Book
As a loveable dog named Bentley approaches his first day of school, he begins to worry about being away from his parents and keeping himself safe due to his food allergies. This age-appropriate book was written to be incredibly simple to follow and to address not only a young child’s food allergies, but also his or her concerns about being away from family members for the first time.
Because Bentley and his teachers know how to keep him safe, he successfully manages his way through multiple activities including snack time, arts and crafts, and recess. At the end of the day, Bentley has had such a good time, he can’t wait to come back tomorrow.
This book is not allergy-specific to appeal to a wide range of families managing life-threating food allergies and special dietary needs. It also includes a section of caregivers notes to help foster conversations about food allergy management outside the home.
