Heather Maisner launches Dinosaur Douglas has Fun in the Sun

Children's author Heather Maisner is the creator of the inimitable Dinosaur Douglas, a naughty dinosaur who gets things wrong before he gets them right. In her first rhyming picture book aimed at children from 2 - 7 years of age, we saw Douglas learning how to look after his teeth properly. In the second book of the series, Dinosaur Douglas has Fun in the Sun, she writes to broaden children's knowledge on how they can use the sun safely for Vitamin D intake.

With the rise of illnesses associated with vitamin D deficiencies, Heather has joined forces with Paediatric Consultants at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital to tackle the problem in a new way.  Children are not getting enough of the main source of vitamin D - sunshine, as they stay indoors watching television, playing on computers and with computer games.

Dinosaur Douglas Has Fun in the Sun, written in rhyme and illustrated by street painter and artist Alex Godwin, is the first fun picture book to encourage children to spend time in the sun, while taking care not to burn. It also helps them learn which foods are rich in vitamin D.

What teachers say about Dinosaur Douglas Has Fun in the Sun

I was really impressed with the way the children were able to connect to the books … even about something as complex as Vitamin D. The discussions that resulted were really fruitful. The themes, covering healthy lifestyle choices, are unlike any that I have been able to find for children in a fictional text, so I personally found it really useful.

Many parents stayed for the story session. They felt that they would like to read these stories to their children and help them explore these current and key issues.
