I’ve seen a lot of questions on social media about children’s books that explain the transplant process in an age-appropriate way. Books are such powerful tools when children are young. Kids identify with protagonists, and how they view the world can be shaped through those portrayals. Books help teach life’s most difficult lessons, and they illustrate those lessons in a way that children can understand. I have yet to find a children’s book about transplants (in general), so I wrote my own for N. I call it “My Special Gift.” I have included my original sketches and the text below.
