The Bugabees Book Givaway

This giveaway is now closed.  Thanks everyone for entering and helping to get the word out about this wonderful book!  I put each entry into the Random Number Generator
and out popped our winner! 

And the winner is...  Becca Groves!  Congratulations!  Becca, please email me at with your address and how you would like the author to personalize your book.  Your gonna love your new book!

February is "I Love To Read Month," so it seems fitting to do a book giveaway this month on my FAVORITE children's food allergy book.

You have a chance to win The Bugabees: Friends With Food Allergies book!  If you don't have kids, you will still want to enter because I'm sure a parent with an allergic child, a teacher or school nurse near you would LOVE to receive this!

Last fall, I was happy to meet the author, Amy Recob, when I was doing a cooking demo at the MN Food Allergy Conference & Expo.  She very generously gave my kids a copy of her book.   I couldn't wait to show them!  They loved it so much that they had me read it to them 5 times in a row that afternoon.  The story rhymes.  The information is clear, simple and positive.  The illustrations are charming, colorful and adorable!

Last week, I read the story to my daughter's first grade class.   It was the day before their Valentine's Day Party which gave us an opportunity to talk about how to help keep their friends safe at the party. The story helped them understand more about their classmate's food allergies.  Their teacher was really impressed with the book and how well it was written.

The book is available to purchase through The Bugabees website, Amazon or Barnes & Noble.  There is special pricing for schools and non-profits through The Bugabees website.

She also has a Bugabees Interactive App available for the Kindle Fire, Nook and iPad.

One Hope's Kitchen reader will win a personalized copy of The Bugabees!

  1. I'd love to win this book!
    I liked both Hope's Kitchen and The Bugabees on FaceBook! :o)

  2. This would be a great book to have. My son who is now 2 1/2 has had food allergies since he was born, milk, pineapple, wheat and tree nuts. Luckily he has grown out of most of them. I would love this book and I liked both pages as well.

  3. I would love to win this book! My daughter is nearly 2 and is severly allergic to eggs, tree nuts and peanuts. We're starting to try to help her understand her allergies and I'd love a book like this to help make it fun. I liked both pages on FB as well. Thanks!

  4. I met both you and Amy Recob at the expo last year! Loved your cooking demo as well as Amy's books. I have copies at home, I bought one for my son's kindergarten class and I would love to win one for my son's class next year:) I have "liked" both the Bugabees and Hope's Kitchen FB pages.

  5. I liked both Hope's Kitchen and Bugabees on FB. We have the Bugybops - and love it - and would love to have the Bugabees to complete the set. There are great books to share at preschool/school to teach everyone about food allergies.

  6. This is one of my favorite books! My nephew is a celiac and if he had his own it would help fun and his friends understand better!

  7. I'm so happy about this book. It looks adorable and how awesome to have a resource like this to help educate the kids at school!

  8. I would love to win this book! Amelia & Sophia were both just diagnosed with allergies to peanuts and it would be a good book to have! I have liked both pages on Facebook.
