Our children perceive us as their parents or guardians; we are their sole source of hope and assistance. In today's confusing world, where many questions remain unanswered, such a situation may be even more complex for young children. Emily A. Reed's book, Big, Brave Voice: Advice for Children Living with Food Allergies, is based on the true story of George, who was diagnosed with a severe food allergy.

The book starts by informing readers that being brave, smart, and speaking up makes you a hero. We get to know that smart kids learn to read and brave kids learn to swim. We get to meet George, a brave and smart kid. But sadly, George gets very sick if he eats the wrong food. He doesn't eat eggs and nuts or foods that contain eggs and nuts. George liked celebrations with nice things to eat, but his allergies made things hard for him because he had to bring his food, which made him sad and embarrassed. Reading Big, Brave Voice lets us know how George forges ahead.

I found this book appealing and very unique in its content, as it serves as a source of motivation for young readers with allergies. This book is a source of strength for little kids, and kids are encouraged to learn how to swim and many more things. I like that we are enlightened about some foods containing eggs and nuts. The book also talks about foods for special days, like Halloween candy, birthday cake, and so on, that little children can learn about from this book. I like that the book encourages children to speak up and be brave enough to ask questions that protect them. I like this book's graphic depictions as they make it lively, and I commend the illustrators for such fantastic work.

I had nothing to dislike about this book, and considering the positives I stated above, I rate it 5 out of 5 stars. I did not encounter any errors while reading it, which shows that it was exceptionally well-edited. I recommend this book to schools and families because it will significantly impact growing children.

As parents or Guidance the roles we play in the life of our children determine the future of the children. This book will help both parents and children. I could like to read books as this.

The cover is everything. That's a brave little boy I tell you. Children's books are exciting especially when they are less fictitious and more real . They educate our children of certain awarenesses that we cannot address. Good review
