10/08/2011

Save A Child’s Heart doctors from Israel (SACH) are the subject of a new children’s book that delivers an inspirational story about a 10-year-old girl from Africa with a medical problem that doctors in her country can’t diagnose or treat.

Online PR News – 08-October-2011 – – Two Dolphins Publishing and author Wendy Lewis recently released their first book targeted at elementary school students between the ages of 7-11, titled “Sabrina, The Girl With A Hole In Her Heart.” Beautifully illustrated by Diane Lucas, the book will appeal to both boys and girls.

Children and parents will be drawn to this touching story of Sabrina, a 10-year-old girl from a rural village in Zanzibar who must decide whether she will leave her family and fly to a faraway place for a surgery that could save her life. Whether readers are drawn to the medical aspects of the story (which includes real photos of an echocardiogram and a heart lung machine) or the humanitarian aspects of the work of Save A Child's Heart, they will definitely want to know more about the children who come to Israel from over 43 developing countries and about the remarkable volunteer SACH doctors and nurses who perform life-saving heart surgeries, free of charge.

“This book is a great resource for any teacher because it covers health, communication, world views and how any person can help, even from very far away. I loved the introduction that introduces the students to the premise of the book as well as the vocabulary list, diagrams of the heart, and hands on activities,” said educator Marly D. Madayag of Kalaheo, Hawaii.

“Writing a book that helps children discuss their own medical challenges and also raises awareness of Congenital Heart Disease has been very humbling. During one school visit, two girls shared that they had a hole in their heart like Sabrina. A nine-year-old boy at a Los Angeles elementary school wanted to buy the book so he could read the story to his dad who is on a heart transplant list,” said author Wendy Lewis.

Sabrina, The Girl With A Hole In Her Heart is available for purchase online from Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Curriculum is available for free download at www.twodolphinspublishing.com.
