Children's Books on Health, Disability and Fitness
Disease and disability are part of the human condition. They affect people of all races, genders, cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. Unfortunately, many are diagnosed during childhood or at birth. The books listed in this guide, and the many others you find in searches, may be helpful in understanding the disease process - not only for the newly diagnosed, but just as importantly, for the friends, family and community. There are also books for children concerning the illness or disability of a parent, family member or loved one.
Also included are children's books on exercise and fitness for maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
