The Adventures of Glia Girl: When Stroke Strikes by Christine Holubec-Jackson is a different approach than her previous book 7 Jars of Hot Pickled Peppers.

Meet the newest superhero, Glia Girl! In this book, she helps kids learn all about strokes.

Oliver and Angelina have had many adventures, but their quest for excitement is far from over. Unfortunately, a tragedy strikes when a family member has a stroke. All of a sudden, Glia Girl comes into their lives to teach them all about strokes. Our bodies are made of many types of cells. Glia Girl is named after glial cells, a type of cell
in our brains. Glial cells help our brains to help us think. Just like Glia Girl helps kids in learning about the brain!

In this delightful book, Christine provides such tangible hope, comfort, and education though her friendly superhero, Glia Girl. She presents such potentially life altering and brain saving information in a super easy and fun way to grasp so children can truly enjoy and learn. The Adventures of Glia Girl is a precious book created to share some of Christine’s invaluable life experience paired with her fervent passion for stroke education thereby making a huge difference for people of all ages.

A thoughtfully written and heartfelt story of friendship that teaches children the diverse complexities of stroke in a manageable and interesting way.

Public education about stroke symptoms and care have been instrumental in changing our models of stroke care and increasing accessibility in the critical first moments of stroke. However, in terms of raising awareness amongst children Ms. Holubec-Jackson’s project is unique. Accompanied by Ms. Korlak’s vibrant illustrations, “The Adventures of Glia Girl” serve to educate children about the pathogenesis (…”like kinking a straw”) of Stroke while additionally empowering them with vital information on how to recognize the symptoms of stroke and mobilize care for loved ones, family, neighbours…anyone. And finally, the character of “Glia Girl” just by virtue of her heroic smile, emphasizes for young readers the ever present hope for recovery and treatment that motivates Stroke Care Givers and Survivors alike. I will be sharing this story at every allowable personal and professional opportunity. Thank you, Christine and Heather, for spreading the word… “Time is Brain!”

Christine’s desire to educate and capture children’s imagination in regard to stroke is evident in her beautifully illustrated book. As a stroke survivor herself she portrays a relatable experience to families. I believe in education as a forerunner and essential component in stroke prevention and early treatment access.
