From the day I got diagnosed I was very concerned about how multiple sclerosis would affect my children. I ordered a few books, but they all were too scary for my young children.
My Mommy, MS and Me is the first children’s book about multiple sclerosis where the language is appropriate and honest, yet interesting and positive.
Julian and his mother, who lives with MS, wrote this book together in hopes it will help others understand the disease in an easier, less clinical way. In the colorful story, Julian compares MS to video games, ninjas, soldier and even super heroes.
Each page includes bright and inviting images and my kids enjoyed snuggling with me while we read it together.

Have you found any books helpful in explaining multiple sclerosis to your children? Or is there any way you help them to understand the disease?
