Stay Healthy Books

We are always finding creative ways to teach students about important health issues! 

 

Dear Parents & Teachers,

As a mother, pediatrician, and researcher, I believe in the importance of raising healthy and empowered children, which is why I am eager to introduce your families to the resources here.

We've created a catalog of fun books that will educate, inspire, and empower your children to be the best versions of themselves. Our mission is to provide you with the most up-to-date medical information written by young people with expert guidance so your families can enjoy and learn together. As we all know, especially during these times, it is important to support children with information, education, and love, and pediatricians worldwide want to ensure that schools and parents have the necessary tools they need.
