Book Review/Giveaway: Sabrina The Girl With A Hole In Her Heart. Ends Jan 29th
Sabrina The Girl with a Hole in her Heart by Wendy Lewis illustrated by Diane Lucas. Based on the work of Save a Child’s Heart- a true story of hope and big hearts.
About: Sabrina, a 10-year-old girl from a rural village in Zanzibar must decide whether to leave her family and fly to a faraway place for a surgery that could save her life. But who are these doctors? They are not from my country, she thinks, as she tosses and turns in her sleep.
My Review: Sabrina The Girl with a Hole in her Heart is a young girl’s journey away from home to a foreign country for medical help to repair the hole in her heart. She couldn’t run, jump or play games like most kids because of the heart defect. The local doctor from her village invited Save A Child’s Heart doctors to their village and suggest that Sabrina needed to have surgery.
The story isn’t just educational but inspiring for both parents and children as they will appreciate the dedication of Save A Child’s Heart doctors and staff, who work tirelessly to save the lives of children with heart defects.
The book shows a real picture of an echocardiogram and a heart lung machine. The last four pages of the book provide a True or False Quiz about Save A Child’s Heart, a diagram of a heart with Atrial Septal Defect (ADS) with brief notes. I highly recommend this book.
Please Note! SACH is totally dedicated to the idea that every child deserves the best medical treatment available, regardless of the child’s nationality, religion, color, gender or financial situation. http://www.saveachildsheart.org/
