Right Under My Nose

The lending library is temporarily closed.

Right Under My Nose was created to help parents and caregivers explain spina bifida to young children. The book is designed as three inter-related sections: a story, activity pages for children to complete and tips for parents and caregivers. Together, they enhance discussion of key challenges facing children with spina bifida. In the story, a young child with spina bifida searches for something special to share at circle time and discovers children with disabilities can successfully self-advocate. The activity pages provide natural opportunities to open and guide discussions that might not otherwise happen. Additionally, the tips pages offer child-friendly and age-appropriate answers to questions children with spina bifida ask frequently, as well as activity suggestions to enrich and empower their lives.
