We had the AMAZING opportunity to read "Peter's Perfect Pipes" and "I'm No Different Than You," written by local authors!
“Peter’s Perfect Pipes” is all about a little boy who suffers from asthma. The kids were able to learn more about the medicine he uses to help his lungs so he can breathe better.
We have some friends with asthma, so it was a great opportunity for the kids to learn more about how they know someone with this and how their life is different because of it.
The other book, "I'm No Different Than You" is about a little girl with Sickle Cell Disease. My littles were able to learn more about how blood cells have different shapes and how there are different medical treatments available to help them.
The great thing about these two books is that they were written by local authors who make the stories a lot of fun while also teaching them about how people are different in an easy-to-understand way.
The books are perfect for a variety of ages and helps them understand more about things they hear and learn about at school.
They also help children understand that there are a lot of things that make us different, but they also make us unique. And while we're different, there are also a lot of things that make us all the same.
