Inspirational Books

With an endless array of appointments and an infinite amount of time dedicated to caring for a family, it can be tough for a parent to find the time to sit down and read a book. On the printed page, however, are thoughts and ideas that can help change how we perceive cerebral palsy, as well as tips and reminders that can bring about improved circumstances for all. Be it a children’s book or a personal memoir, a book is a relaxing way to learn, or a way to temporarily take leave of the day, for some inspiring me – or family – time.
