Raritan Township author Cindy Yard donated copies of her children’s books, “Camille’s How to Blow your Nose” and “Camille’s How to Wipe Your Bottom” to all five Hunterdon Pediatric Associates offices in Hillsborough, Flemington, Washington and Clinton.

The books will be used as a resource for families during their visits to the office.

Yard’s journey as a self-published children’s author began in 2019 with a simple request from her daughter to granddaughter Camille to “come to Grammy boot camp to learn how to blow her nose,” according to information from Hunterdon Healthcare System.

Yard drew on her 25 years of experience in training and developing curricula for people with intellectual disabilities, the statement said.

“Camille’s How to Blow your Nose” launched in April 2019.

Yard’s second book was a response to Camille’s mastery of potty training and to her own realization of the unmet need for a book that provided a step-by-step, interactive, and fun method of learning how to wipe your bum. “Camille’s How to Wipe your Bottom” launched in May 2021.

Yard’s original purpose for writing these books, according to the statement, was based solely on leaving an inheritance for her granddaughter.

Yard plans to contact all Hunterdon County kindergartens to schedule an author visit to provide a free copy of each of her books in the near future, according to the statement.
