Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases gained international recognition in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. On June 29, he has a kids’ picture book coming out about his experience.
The book, titled Dr. Fauci: How a Boy From Brooklyn Became America’s Doctor, tells the story of how Dr. Fauci began as an inquisitive boy in Brooklyn who rode around on his blue Schwinn bike delivering prescriptions from his dad’s pharmacy. The book follows his journey from boyhood—when he was taught by both his dad and his grandfather to stay curious and build connections with people that would last a lifetime—through medical school and into his adult life as a physician. The book also features recommended reading, a full spread of facts about vaccines and how they work and Dr. Fauci’s own tips for future scientists.
Dr. Fauci: How a Boy From Brooklyn Became America’s Doctor, recommended for kids aged 4 through 8, is now available to purchase on Amazon.com.
