Raritan Township Author Donates Books to Hunterdon Pediatric Associates

September 17, 2021

Author Cindy Yard of Raritan Township generously donated her children’s books,  Camille’s How to Blow your Nose and  Camille’s How to Wipe your Bottom to all five Hunterdon Pediatric Offices located in Flemington, Washington, Clinton, and Hillsborough.  The books will be used as a resource for families during their visits to the office.

Cindy’s journey as a self-published children’s author began in 2019 with a simple request from her daughter for granddaughter Camille to “come to Grammy boot camp to learn how to blow her nose”. She drew from her 25 years of experience in the training and curriculum development for individuals with intellectual disabilities. The techniques used in both books are easily transferred to all learners. Camille’s How to Blow your Nose Book launched on Amazon in April of 2019.

Her second book was in response to Camille’s mastering potty training and Cindy’s realization of the enormous unmet need for a book that offered a step-by-step, interactive and fun method to teach how to wipe your bottom. Camille’s How to Wipe your Bottom Book launched on Amazon in May 2021.

Cindy’s original objective for writing these books was based solely on leaving a legacy for her granddaughter. A lifelong resident of Hunterdon County, Cindy was so pleased with the response that she wanted to share with her community and the Hunterdon Healthcare family.

Cindy is planning to reach out to all of Hunterdon County’s preschools to schedule an Author’s visit to deliver a complimentary copy of each of her books in the near future.
