Bilingual Booklet On Sports Injuries
A colorful English and Spanish booklet from the National Institutes of Health teaches children and teens how to avoid sports injuries. The 16-page pamphlet, called Ana’s Story, is a fotonovela that uses a comic-book style format to tell the story of a teen soccer player named Ana. After spraining her knee during a game, Ana and her family learn how to treat a sports injury promptly to avoid future complications. The booklet gives tips on how to keep sports safe for kids. Playing sports can improve children’s fitness, self-esteem, coordination and self-discipline. But it can also put them at risk for injuries. Activities such as warming up before exercise and staying hydrated can help protect their health.
