Luca..... The Lion Who Couldn't Eat Meat - Book Review

Updated: Jul 11, 2021

This is an uplifting book for children who have food allergies.

And a great way to help others understand what it is like to live with them.

Tercha’s book is beautifully written and the illustrations by Victoria Ward-Fowler are gorgeous.

It takes us through the feelings of children who have to watch others eating whatever they like, while they have to have something different.

The story, in rhyme, manages to help children not feel so alone with their allergy; while at the same time explaining to those who don’t have any to understand and empathise.

We are encouraged to focus on the things we can do, eat etc and not dwell on the things we can’t.

I've recored the book on my YouTube Channel - so if you want to see what lovely book it is - pop over.
