FASD everywhere

FASD is a global disorder!

Make no mistake, FASD is everywhere! It is a global disaster and growing. Stats prove this. Education on the disorder is essential. Discussion vital, as we discover alcoholic sperm can cause FASD during conception. Visit the following links for information.

FASD everywhere

The immediate global interest in my children’s FASD picture book Strawberry & Cracker, Twins with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome confirms my original instinct that caregivers crave appropriate books for their children with FASD. I know because I was one of them. Too bad a picture book like Strawberry & Cracker wasn’t available when I was raising my young grandchildren with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. The book would have helped me introduce my grandchildren to their disorder, and they would have loved characters with whom they could identify. Not stereotypical super-heroes, but everyday kids challenged by life’s FASD struggles. Caregivers of children with FASD need all the help they deserve, and I believe Strawberry & Cracker children’s picture book is high on the list of must-haves. What a wonderful way to educate both children and society about FASD and the children’s special needs.

FASD children’s picture book.

Meet Strawberry & Cracker, twins with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS)! With over twenty years of experience parenting four grandchildren with FAS, through my perception of the disorder, I have created the children’s picture book titled Strawberry & Cracker, Twins with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.

Illustrated in the first of the Strawberry & Cracker series, titled, The School Day, is the twins’ use of visual aids, the necessity to attend a special needs class, and living with a caregiver other than a biological parent. Initially featuring Strawberry and Cracker’s strengths, the story subsequently introduces the reader to a typical school day in the life of a child with FAS, and the supports required for a successful outcome.  

FASD children’s picture book.

Strawberry & Cracker, Twins with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, the picture book series, is designed to fulfill several needs:

  • To offer children with FASD a fun picture book highlighting daily challenges they can relate to.
  • To help children with FASD accept their diagnosis with dignity and self-respect.
  • To offer caregivers a tool with which to introduce their child with FASD to the disorder.
  • To bring awareness of FASD to the public.
