Preston loved to play with all his toys when he was a little boy; he always wore his helmet when he rode on anything. I wrote this book to educate children about helmet safety and how the brain needs to be protected because it controls our body and helps us learn new things. 
Did you know that someone in the U.S. suffers a brain injury every 9 seconds? 
Preston fell while riding a skateboard and injured his brain. He will always need a caregiver to take care of him and for those around him to move him from his bed to his wheel chair. He has had hundreds of hours of therapy and can now make some sounds, but mostly communicates with his eyes and facial expressions. Preston is a fighter and is very determined to get better. His fundraising T-Shirt says, “the force is strong with this one” and it is so perfect for our Star Wars lover. My hope is that this book encourages your loved ones to be safe and to wear helmets when they are riding on anything that makes them go. 
Every March is Traumatic Brain Injury Awareness Month please use this book to educate others about some ways to prevent TBI’s. Slow down, play safe, and wear a helmet.
