 BOOKS ABOUT PARENTING AND HEALTHCARE

        At one time, I wanted to be a nurse, then a doctor. Then I found out something that changed my mind about medicine. While I didn't mind blood, I decided I did mind doing what you need to do to make blood appear, as in surgery. I also discovered I was better at writing than math. So now I write about health topics and issues related to raising children. Here are some books to help readers of all ages learn more about each other and special health concerns.
