I Know You Won’t Forget
Every so often, someone provides a resource in short supply. Square Circle Press has a forthcoming title called "I Know You Won't Forget," a children's book that deals with the difficult issue of a brain injured parent.
From the website:
Know you Won't Forget is a story about a young boy whose mother suffers a traumatic brain injury (TBI). After being embarassed by and ridiculed for his mom's inability to act according to their community's idea of "normal" behavior, the boy helps his mom with coping strategies, showing how a TBI affects everyone in a family and how issues can be resolved. Suitable for readers ages 8 and up.
The book was written by a group of TBI survivors from the Crotched Mountain Community Partnership Structured Day Program in Albany, NY. Conceived as part of a group therapy project, the book has given the clients a sense of pride and accomplishment which many mundane activities do not provide. The book's illustrator is also a TBI survivor, professional artist Carol Jordan.
