Format: Hardcover
Keeping A Secret: A Story About Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis is a unique, non-fiction children's book that teaches young readers about juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, its diagnosis, and its treatment. Four-color illustrations by April Hartmann brings to life a heartwarming book written specifically by Elizabeth Murphy-Melas to help young readers diagnosed with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (and their friends and family) to better understand, adapt, and cope with this sometimes painful and debilitating condition. Keeping A Secret is very highly recommended for school and community library collections.

I am a Mother who has a daughter with this disease. I found that she could relate to it because she is a soccer player, just like the character in the book. I appreciate Mrs. Melas for her work on the subject. best regards!
