Keep S’myelin: A fun resource for kids about MS

The Keep S’myelin Activity Book is a 28-page colorful, engaging, informative, and reassuring interactive publication to help children and their parents talk and learn about MS together. It is filled with stories, interviews, games, and activities on a variety of topics related to MS, and there is a special separate 8-page section just for parents.
