Strawberry & Cracker, Twins with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome – ADVOCATE!
I created ADVOCATE! a children’s FASD picture book for children aged 5-12 in support of September’s FASD Awareness Day, but with kids now firmly settled back in school, ADVOCATE! makes a great FASD teaching tool not only for children but also teachers. Educators don’t automatically know the signs and symptoms of FASD; like all of us, they need to be taught.
ADVOCATE! FASD picture book for children aged 5-12.
Meet Strawberry & Cracker, Twins with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome who live with their Grandma. On International FASD Awareness Day, Grandma encourages the twins to advocate by sharing their FASD feelings. With her help, the twins write to everyday people in their community, those unfamiliar with the signs and symptoms of FASD. In doing so, Strawberry and Cracker convey the challenges of FASD and garner support for all children with FASD. Happy to be advocates for their cause, the twins share their feelings with a list of locals including a sour server at a local café, a lifeguard who needs a lesson in compassion, an unpleasant uncle, a shocked shopper, and a troubled teacher. Grandma cannot help shedding a tear of pride when the twins agree to advocate and share their feelings.

Here, are just two incidences associated with FASD within the pages of ADVOCATE!. The story includes information relating to FASD. I believe the Strawberry and Cracker, Twins with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome series belongs in every school and library!
The Strawberry and Cracker, Twins with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome series including THE SCHOOL DAY, FIDGET! and ADVOCATE! is available from AMAZON. An FASD picture book series suitable for children aged 5-12.
