In a new book, Aiden’s Spots, the story follows Aiden on his 1st day of school as he begins Kindergarten. Aiden has Vitiligo and is unsure what to expect or even how to explain it if called upon. Luckily his teacher Mrs. Dean is well versed in Vitiligo and can educate his class on the 1% of the world with Vitiligo.
Vitiligo is an auto-immune disease that attacks the melanocytes in the skin – leaving white spots on the body.
In the book, Aiden and his class learn about their differences and how they are the same. Aiden's Spots is wonderful for teaching children with and without Vitiligo all about this ever prevalent Auto Immune disorder.
The book's authors, Tierza and Justin Hall are my guests this week.
