Sneak Peak: Skin Sense, a book for children

The Cancer Crusaders Organization is pleased to announce the forthcoming debut of Skin Sense.

Written by our friend Lori Glickman a licensed clinical social worker and mother of three young daughters, Skin Sense is the first children's book (illustrated by a Glickman's 10-year-old daughter) that discusses the importance of lifelong sun safety and includes fun, interactive tips for year-round sun protection.

"This book was written with hopes of generating the desire in young children to want to protect their skin from the sun and for parents and teachers to want to protect their children," Glickman says. "Each child who is properly protected daily from the sun everyday is one less potential skin cancer statistic in our future.”

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, 80% of one's lifetime sun damage occurs before age 18. Skin Sense addresses the urgent need for parents, caregivers, and educators to teach children how to properly protect themselves from over-exposure to harmful UV rays. This book is an essential tool in the constant effort to teach children about sun safety and to significantly reduce the number of young adults in their 20s and 30s being diagnosed with melanoma--the deadliest form of skin cancer.

This is what dermatologist Katherine Bell of Houston, Texas had to say about Skin Sense:

" [Skin Sense is] An accurate and important book, which grabs the attention of its young audience and impels them to want to protect their skin.”

Thanks, Lori, for writing such an important and much-needed book! Skin Sense is a must-have for any parent, grandparent, skin cancer crusader -- anyone who loves children and wants to protect them from this growing form of cancer.
