The Canadian Congenital Heart Alliance is excited to launch a children's book "Penelope goes for her heart checkup".
This illustrated book for children ages 5-8 , follows Penelope - a young girl - as she travels to the hospital for her ‘heart checkup’. Reading this story with your child a few days before their ‘heart checkup’ will assist in preparing them for their appointment.
It also includes a colouring activity to engage children as they interact with Penelope's journey. Along with your child, you can follow Penelope and she and her mother visit the ‘Heart Team’.
