GIBSON CITY — Thirty-eight-year-old Gibson Area Hospital Long-Term Care Annex resident Jani Fraim will hold a special book signing for her book “Stranger Danger” at 2 p.m. Feb. 26 in the GAH Annex living room.
Fraim has muscular dystrophy, and writing a book has always been on her bucket list. However her desire increased when a rash of attempted child abductions were reported in East Central Illinois during the fall.
“As a mother of three, I found that it is important for parents to help their kids understand the difference between right and wrong,” she said. “‘Stranger Danger’ can be a tool to help kids understand that difference and avoid dangerous situations.”
“Stranger Danger” was illustrated by third-grade students at GCMS Elementary School. Students were chosen to illustrate the book because of the topic at hand.
“I wanted to take a heavy subject and make it lighter by giving the children an opportunity to draw pictures they could relate to,” Fraim said.
