MSK Kids

THE WORST PAIN IN THE WORLD


Award winning author, Nicky Johnston, developed this beautiful children’s book for us. It tells the story of Bella who’s living with juvenile arthritis.

It’s Bella’s birthday and she’s not having a great day. See how her friends pull together to ensure she has the best birthday ever!

You can order a free copy of this book (postage additional) through our online shop or watch the beautiful animated video of the book.

This book is designed for the preschool and early primary school years, and can be read to children living with any type of chronic pain condition. It helps other children understand that pain is not always visible. And that kids like Bella can have good days when they can do everything they want, and bad days when they struggle.

It finishes with some tips for kids for managing their chronic pain.
