Little Aiden Book Alert
When Dad Went
to the Hospital
Local children's book author, gun violence advocate, and community activist Sabrina Wiggins released her second children's book, "When My Dad Went to The Hospital," recounts her childhood experience dealing with a family tragedy.
"Learning how to cope with such an experience is not something that many parents or guardians are equipped with, and I think that it is important that both adults and children get the counseling they need."
Sarah Gugluizza, LCSW (Clinical Social Worker Servicing Children, Teens & Adults), said, "Your book is significant and speaks to a topic that isn't discussed but is incredibly important. It sheds light on what a family can go through in a crisis and how different family members can react. As a therapist, I enjoyed seeing how you included counseling as support when mental health can be a stigmatized concept."

An excellent book!!! When I first bought this book from the author, my daughter was too young to read it on her own so I read to her. Today at 6, she loves the challenge of reading it on her own and learning about Washington D.C. Since she has visited many of these amazing landmarks from the book, she enjoy making the connections now as the book is very educational. I like how the book touches on our first black president and first family and gives ideas on how to get involved in community service.
Great educational read for children of all ages and ethnicities. I love that not only is it an educational read for adolescents, it also highlights the presidency of the first African American President and first family. The book also gives recommendations on how kids can involve themselves with community service outreach and provides some suggestions on how to get started.
Awesome book!! I bought this book from the author herself because I taught her in 7th grade. It is so wonderful when you see your students grow up and do great things. I loved the book and plan on reading it to my great nieces and nephews. I also want to buy a couple copies for our local school and public library. The illustrations are fantastic as well.
