Reviews

"A beautiful and moving story that touches on the struggles involved with daily living for a child with a body that is not working as it should..." Sara Thurman, EdD Principal, Walker Station Elementary in Houston, Texas "Ms Wood has written a wonderful story for children with an important message about organ donation. The illustrations and writing are very accurate with regard to organ donation and transplantation, yet done in an interesting and age-appropriate manner for young children..." Boyd Ward Executive Director, Arkansas Regional Organ Recovery Agency "Now Caitlin Can shows that needing a kidney transplant and getting one are two very different situations and the waiting time can be lengthy. The portrayal of Caitlin is believable, showing how her condition affected the lives of others around her..." Cecil T. Tielke Two-time kidney recipient and a thirty-year veteran educator in Texas schools
