Children's Hospital Los Angeles
Los Angeles, CA
This grant will help to support the printing of “Right Under My Nose,” a book that was created and published in 2006 by Children’s Hospital Los Angeles to promote self-esteem among children with disabilities and provide child-friendly information and activity suggestions to enrich and empower children with spina bifida. The book is appropriate for preschool children, but it is also appropriate for children up to 8 years old. The book is available in English and Spanish, and is offered as an interactive e-book in both English and Spanish. Grant funds will help to support the printing of 5,000 copies of the book. This grant was funded through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Award #1U59DD000338).
