Description

Aaron loves animals more than anything else in the world. But when he is diagnosed with allergies, the doctor tells him that his pets --- a dog, a cat, six kittens and six guinea pigs --- have got to go. After Aaron reluctantly finds each pet a new home, he discovers other ways to make animals a part of his life.

The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America reports that an estimated one in every five adults and children suffers from allergies. Aaron's Awful Allergies will have special appeal for those millions of children living with allergies.

Editorial Reviews

It's a cruel trick of nature: those who dearly love animals are often apt to be the most allergic to their pets. [Aaron's Awful Allergies] was labeled “Outstanding” according to Parent Council. It's an important source of help for parents who are told the awful words, “Get rid of your pets.” Aaron is miserable, inconsolable. But the solution, a fish, is a happy one, one that might, eventually appeal to some children. It worked for Aaron.

The beauty of Troon Harrison's story is in its emotional impact on the reader, the support and understanding Aaron receives from he family, and the simple but fulfilling way he comes to terms with his loss.Aaron's Awful Allergies could be an excellent source of hope and inspiration for families having to cope with the changes allergies can impose on your children's lifestyle.
