Overview

One minute your child is fine. The next minute, a broken bone. Hours later, in a clunky cast. For weeks or months, sidelined from favorite activities. If your child is like Sammy, (s)he gets glum and grumpy as days slog by.

Help is pages away in Sammy's Broken Leg (Oh, No!) and the Amazing Cast That Fixed It, a whimsical book to entertain a child in a cast for healing a broken bone, or in a spica cast for hip correction (hip dysplasia).

Children in a cast will delight in a troupe of Kisses who cheer for Sammy and coach her to be patient. The Kisses are Sammy's secret: only she can hear them. How and when they whooshed into her life will amaze and amuse.

It all goes to prove: One Kiss for a Boo-Boo. A Bazillion Kisses for a Cast!

Lavished with colorful, quirky illustrations, Sammy's Broken Leg (Oh, No!) and the Amazing Cast That Fixed It is entertaining, educational and encouraging. The book:

  • Gives children and families realistic expectations about weeks or months of healing time.
  • Eases children's fears, calms parents' anxieties.
  • Hands parents a tool to boost their child's (and their own) patience.

    About the Author

    Judith Wolf Mandell has had a long, varied career as a journalist and publicist. She, her husband and Cockapoo live in Nashville, Tennessee in an angular, absurd-for-their-age three-story house. This book, her first, was inspired by her granddaughter's "Oh, No" fall that landed her in a cast for a mostly woeful month.

    Lise C. Brown is an artist whose creations in a variety of mediums are in collections worldwide. She shares life in Nashville, Tennessee with her husband and their family of rescued cats.
