Ouch! I Got A Cut!
A must for parents, caretakers and educators, Ouch! I Got A Cut! is a read-along book for young children emphasizing the three “C’s” of wound care. When you get a Cut: Clean and Cover! Follow Sebastian, Jilly and Nelson through a fun-filled day at the park when the inevitable happens: one of the children gets a cut, but doesn’t know exactly what to do. The simple, three pronged approach, ‘Cut, Clean and Cover’ prevents infection and saves lives.
The book was written by Orlaith & Kathleen Staunton, the mother and sister of Rory Staunton, who died at 12 years old from sepsis (the body’s life threatening response to an infection) because a scrape during a regular gym class at his school was noticed but not treated.
With education and prevention as its mission, Orlaith & Ciaran Staunton founded The Rory Staunton Foundation for the Prevention of Sepsis. Sepsis kills over 250,000 Americans every year, and is the biggest killer of children in the world.
Brilliantly illustrated by fine artist Cecilia Mandrile, Ouch! I Got a Cut! is whimsical, welcoming and entertaining, and will forever cement the importance of wound care for young children.
