A book to help children understand the effects of stroke in someone they love
The Heart and Stroke Foundation created this book as a resource for families to help children understand more about stroke and its effects on stroke survivors and caregivers. The book is designed for children between the ages of 5 and 10 years. We suggest that children review the book with a family member or another supportive adult that can help them read and discuss the book.
