Are you the parent or caregiver of a child who has been diagnosed with juvenile arthritis (often called JA or JIA)? This beautifully written children's story introduces the reader to seven year old Alex. Through colorful illustrations and easy to read text, we meet a boy who has fun doing lots of things, but he doesn't like having JA. Alex shares his "ups and downs" with the reader, but he continues to maintain a positive attitude throughout the story. Alex gently emphasizes the importance of taking his prescribed medication and the need to stay active in order to live well with JA. A great story to share with siblings, family members and friends of those living with juvenile arthritis. A useful Q & A section and a section for further reading is included at the end of the story.
