From the Publisher

Our interest in the concept originated from our discovery that there a very few books available about children with medical conditions. We have discovered that non-profits are in need of these books. Our feedback has been great and demand is spectacular. We are happy to help!

The first title in the Dream Publishing Company's new and impressive "Sillwee Wobbert" series of uplifting and non-technical stories about health issues for young readers, The Happy Heart Kid is a picturebook written especially for young children who have a heart condition, or young friends with a heart condition. With his heart-shaped head, The Happy Heart Kid is an engaging caricature that shows kids it's OK to live, laugh, be silly, and have fun with friends while taking proper care of oneself. The vividly colorful yet simple illustrations help this rhyming story and its deep, positive inner message come fully alive. Very highly recommended reading.

Sillwee Wobbert looks forward to playing soccer with his friends. But one friend, nicknamed Wheezing Will, hasn't always been able to participate in soccer. Will's asthma made it hard to run and play, and he often has to stop for his medication. But when uses his medication properly, he can do anything his friends can do - and more!
Children with asthma often don't understand what is happing to them when illness prevents their participating normal activities with their friends. Sillwee Wobbert and Wheezing Will forge understanding asthma in this marvelous story perfect for coloring and sharing. While doctors offices, schools and libraries will find this book to marvelously informative as well as entertaining, parents will find it even more useful as it opens communication about an illness that can leaving children feeling frightened and isolated. Perfect for bedtime reading or afternoon coloring, SILLWEE WOBBERT AND WHEEZING WILL IN THE BIG GAME earns the WordWeaving Award for Excellence.

I have seen this book in doctors' offices and hospitals and have learned that it is used for children or adult patients with medical conditions as a way to continue the line of communication with the patients about their illness. Nurses and child life professionals especially seem to use it as an educational tool. I was very impressed with the mission of this publisher and the uplifting message that Sillwee Wobbert sends. Every friend that I show the book to just love it. I can't wait to see it in schools and libraries. Wonderful and enchanting!

This weekend, Melody and I had the opportunity to review three of the books in the Sillwee Wobbert Picture Book series. I was immediately impressed. G. Robert has done a phenomenal job at capturing the essence of special needs and putting the information into book form for children. The books are colorful and warm with illustrations that are catchy yet not overwhelmingly "busy" or distracting. Melody sat and read the books on her own. After she finished, I asked her what she thought of Sillwee Wobbert and his friends. "I liked the books. They were fun to read...and cute!" I went on to ask her what she had learned about each or the special needs covered in the books. When asked about Sillwee Wobbert, Diabetes and Jose at School and Play, she said "I learned a lot about Diabetes. If Jose doesn't eat often and watch his sugar, he could become very sick. Sometimes he has to have his finger poked. Kids with diabetes are just like me. They just have to be very careful about what they eat and about what their body tells them." Each book contained a lesson that Melody quickly caught on to. The fact that she understood the intended lesson proved this series to be a valuable tool in teaching not only that it is "ok" to have a disability or special need, but it is also "ok" to be friends with kids who have disabilities or special needs, like Sillwee Wobbert and his friends. With so many books on the market today, this series is sure to rise above the rest with its valuable lessons that are often missed in today's fad movie-related or television series spin-off books. I would recommend this series to anyone working with, treating, or caring for a child. These books will make great additions to hospital or clinic waiting rooms, school classrooms and libraries, childcare centers, and just about anywhere that you're likely to find children.
