A Children's Book
"I'm Just Small,
That's All" was inspired by my daughter who
was born with a type of dwarfism called
achondroplasia. There are over 100 different forms of
dwarfism of which achondroplasia is the most common.
As a child and adult her short stature and
disproportionate limbs will present her with physical
and emotional challenges.
I wrote this book to
inform other children (from about 3 to 9 years of
age) about her condition and to help them
understand that despite this difference she is
still an ordinary, regular child who likes to play
and laugh just like they do.
