Book Review - Amanda's Fall: A Story for Children About Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) by Kelly Bouldin Darmofal

Expertly put together, written verse and very good illustrations describe how a simple fall and a bang to the head can affect a child and how the parents or guardians feel.


It describes perfectly how the child feels and the symptoms they experience during the trauma. It is done in a reassuring manner and explains the prognosis. It explains the hospital and doctors interventions and the expertly drawn images of the equipment used takes away the fear factor.


To fully understand what their child is going through it encourages parents to ask the medical professionals for updates and to research the condition and symptoms to ease their worries.


It relays a message to schools, parents and children on the importance of checking the areas where children play for hazards and to be wearing the appropriate safety equipment.ie cycle helmet while riding a bike.


As the book relates the symptoms from the child’s point of view it reassures the parent these symptoms are common with the accident and are short term conditions and with swift and expert care the child will make a full recovery.
