A Day With Dr. Waddle activity book for kids

dr. waddle

When cancer strikes in the family, at school, or in the neighborhood, children often harbor many questions and fears. The center’s staff created this activity book to help adults explain cancer to kids. Filled with pictures to color and puzzles to solve, A Day With Dr. Waddle presents a friendly duck who happens to be a scientist and explains cancer in an informative, yet sensitive, manner. Spend a day with Dr. Waddle in his super-dooper research laboratory and learn about cancer, science and good health habits.

Read how Gilda's Club in Grand Rapids, Mich., is using A Day With Dr. Waddle, in our 2016 Conquest magazine.
