Fans of Christine Holubec-Jackson first met Glia Girl, the fun, wise character derived from "Glial cell," a type of cell found in the brain, in "The Adventures of Glia Girl: When Stroke Strikes," the first installment of the series

In this sequel, The Adventures of Glia Girl: Ouch Glia Girl and the kids, Angelina, Oliver, and Manuel, continue another exciting learning adventure. In this new adventure fittingly titled, The Adventures of Glia Girl: Ouch Glia Girl returns after Manuel hits his head.

Her purpose specifically is to:

  • Teach the kids the meaning of a concussion
  • Explain to them in simple terms what a concussion does to the body

Excerpt from the book:

"The inside of your head is filled with liquid to help keep your brain safe, just like the white around an egg yolk...Why did Manuel's mom take him to the doctor?" Asked Oliver. When Manuel's head hit the goal post his brain moved around inside the liquid (Ouch )." Glia Girl explained. As a result], this may cause a concussion and make you feel yucky. A doctor will make sure Manuel gets the care he needs."
