Book Review and Giveaway
It's Sunday and Stacey is grocery shopping with her family when she sees her friend John. John is shopping with his Aunt Donna. Stacey notices a bandage on Aunt Donna's nose and asks her about it. Donna proceeds to explain how when she was younger she spent time in the sun and never worried about protection. As a result she has developed skin cancer and had to have the cancer removed from her skin. Aunt Donna also explains the different types of skin cancer and what Stacey and other children can do to stay safe.
As a skin cancer survivor, Kimberling Galeti Kenedy has effectively written this story for young children and through easy flowing text and kid friendly illustrations teaches parents and children how to stay safe in the sun while still getting the important nutrients Vitamin D provides for our bodies.
I definitely recommend picking up a copy which is perfect for the upcoming summer season when many of us spend hours enjoying the warmth of the summer sun. I am also partial to the main character's first name! Available at Amazon.com.
