Having been hospitalized for thirty days as a child, and having cared for thousands of hospitalized children in his more than 40 years as a pediatrician, John Miller recognizes viscerally the impact of hospital stays on kids and their parents.
Two years ago this inspired Dr. John to begin writing a fantasy novel for kids. The novel turned into a series, and the project grew into Keep Our Kids Reading, a 501 (c) (3) created to help to donate these novels – and, eventually, a wide variety of books – to children throughout our country. Dr. John’s goal is to have a book in every hospitalized child’s hands for them to read or for their mothers and fathers to read to them.
Keep Our Kids Reading is dedicated to providing hospitalized children – and their parents – with entertaining and magical books that will, for a while at least, provide some respite from the fear, boredom, and realities they are facing.
