Every night thousands of children wear a special brace to maintain the position of their feet after the casting phase of the Ponseti treatment for clubfoot, usually until age 4.
This very important maintenance phase helps prevent recurrence of the clubfoot.
It takes teamwork, patience and continuity to master the bracing phase.
This bedtime story talks about the jobs that shoes do, and encourages the child to wear their clever night-night shoes to keep their feet straight.
Light, fun prose and beautiful illustrations make this a book to be treasured by Ponseti kids and their families.
