New children’s book – Chloe and Tom, a story about siblings and Fragile X syndrome

March 29th, 2024

Chloe and Tom A story about Siblings and Fragile X is a new Australian children’s story written by the parent of real-life Chloe and Tom (older now!)

The story is a gentle introduction for younger children to a conversation about Fragile X. It’s a warm, positive story of sibling love, understanding, and inclusion.

The author of the book is Mel Mikkselsen, a special education teacher and a member of Fragile X Association of Australia.  The story is presented in a way which supports the Fragile X learning style, with minimal words and an emphasis on richly coloured and detailed images.

This paperback book can be ordered from Amazon (the publisher of the book), Booktopia, Barnes and Noble and some other online sites. E-book version coming soon!
