Summary: NEDC's Digital Media Manager Chris Barrett collaborated with University of Tennessee psychology professor, Dr. Sally B. Hunter to create a heartwarming book called "Training Wheels: How Did I Get Here?" The story is about five year old Miles and the new bike he gets for his birthday from his special friend, Mike in California. Miles' parents explain that Mike's mom and dad generously donated their remaining embryos and he was born as a result of their loving gift. The book is told in a delightful rhyming pattern, using words that are easy for preschoolers to understand and a storyline that will help to satisfy their curiosity about where they came from. Fun and colorful illustrations by Knoxville, TN artist, Tyler Garrison saturate the book and enhances it appeal to young children.
