Inspirational Author Kristi Patrice Carter Release Illustrated Children's book “Chronic Illness Can't Beat My Superhero Mommy”

Many families wonder how to explain something like fibromyalgia to their children in a way that won't leave them upset or frightened. Kristi Patrice Carter tackles this head on in her new children's book “Chronic Illness Can't Beat My Superhero Mommy” and parents couldn't be more pleased.

August 17, 2017

Fibromyalgia can be a challenge to deal with, especially for a mother with an active child or children. In an effort to compassionately explain the difficulties of the health issue to a youngster, popular self-help author Kristi Patrice Carter has announced the release of “Chronic Illness Can't Beat My Superhero Mommy”, a picture book for children explaining life with fibromyalgia, how it can still be lots of fun and full of adventure, as long as the condition is treated with the respect and concern it deserves.

“I've found story telling to be a magnificent way to break down difficult subjects for kids of all ages to understand,” remarked Carter, author or close to a dozen books. “Mom's who fulfill all their responsibilities with more or less of a smile, while dealing with fibromyalgia are true superheros in every sense of the word, so coming up with the title wasn't hard at all.”

“Chronic Illness Can't Beat My Superhero Mommy” is expertly illustrated in full color by Avoltha, a perfect selection to compliment Carter's heart-touching words. Told from the perspective of a young girl, Danielle, as she's educated about the dual issues of fibro and migraines her mother is facing, both by her mom herself and other loving family members, the book becomes quite difficult to put down either for a child or adult. It also expertly opens up the door to family discussions about these and other health issues, always framing them in a positive and constructive way and avoiding fear-building and other undue negativity.

“Chronic Illness Can't Beat My Superhero Mommy” is available both in paperback and Kindle editions.

Early reviews have given Carter's new books two very enthusiastic thumbs up.

Sarah S., from Indiana, recently said, “Chronic Illness Can't Beat My Superhero Mommy” gave me a way to educate my daughter about my fibromyalgia, that was both caring and compelling. She loved it and so do I. Five stars and fully recommended.”
