Overview

"Zip-Line" is a charming children's book written for young boys and girls that had open heart surgery and are left with a "zip-line" - a large scar on their chest. Written and illustrated by the father of a baby girl who had open heart surgery at 6 months of age, this heart warming rhyme book whimsically explains the answer to the question "How did that line get there?". Beautifully illustrated, "Zip-Line" sets a model for children to be comfortable with themselves, their scar, and the surgery that they were too young to remember.

With an estimated 20,000 pediatric open heart surgeries each year in the United States, and nearly 70% of those performed on children under one year of age, this story helps raise awareness of Congenital Heart Defects (CHD) and provides all children with a simple positive message:

"So ask me and I'll tell you my story and my name,
and though we might look different there we're otherwise the same."
