Written by the experts at Gillette Children's, and illustrated by beloved Twin Cities artist Nancy Carlson, It’s Okay to Ask! is a discussion-inspiring picture book about children connecting with and making friends with peers who have disabilities.
To celebrate the release of the book in Spanish, Gillette Press has partnered with local organizations that cater to Spanish speaking communities to distribute copies of ¡Está bien preguntar! at centers across the Twin Cities.
¡Está bien preguntar! is now available in softcover through Amazon and other retailers.
Coming very soon: Proud To Be Me, a colorful children’s board book that teaches toddlers about physical differences. Written by Gillette pediatric hand surgeons Ann Van Heest, MD and Deborah Bohn, MD, and illustrated by Rick Korab.
