This Children’s Book Puts The Spotlight On Kids With Food Allergies

In Avril Knows, Heenan writes about a girl named Avril who has a nut allergy. Her parents ask an artist named Jophiel, who is also their neighbor, to paint a portrait of her. Jophiel learns about the precautions Avril must take because of her allergy and discovers that some kids get mad at her at school because they can’t have certain food in the classroom. In the end, Jophiel uses her portrait of Avril to show her how powerful and special she is ― food allergy and all.
