Arlene is on the SCENE

Arlene surfs the blog-o-sphere…

Posted on: January 3, 2011

Arlene has been popping up on blogs these days, and we wanted to share the links!

Arlene On the Scene was rated as one of the top children’s books that teaches compassion by Pragmatic Mom, a great blog about children’s literature, education and parenting.

Top 10: Books That Teach Kids Compassion (ages 2-14) UPDATED2

CMT Charcot-Marie-Tooth books to teach children compassion, pragmatic mom arlene on the scene special needs children in the classroom


Marybeth Sidoti Caldarone,  co-author of Arlene and parent of Grace on whom the book is based, was interviewed by Louise Kinross for Bloom magazine which focuses on parenting kids with disabilities.

For us, we are so thankful that in 2010 Arlene stepped onto the scene and brought much-needed awareness to Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease and the experiences of those living with it.  We will continue to spread Arlene’s message throughout 2011 by visiting schools and hosting book events.  We are inspired by the growing community of folks working together to change things for people living with CMT and other disabilities as well.  It all starts with our own perceptions and understanding, and from there, things blossom!


P.S.  We’re beginning work on the sequel…here’s to 2011!
