The Huddle
Emperor Penguins mass together in a circular group called a "Huddle," wherein they exhibit extraordinary acts of cooperation in the face of a common hardship (the harsh Antartic winter). In the Penguin Cafe's Huddle, you are encouraged to share resources, printed or online, that have proven valuable in living with a Glycoprotein Storage Disease.
Books and Publications
Post the names of books or publications that you think valuable in raising a child or caring for an adult with a Glycoprotein Storage Disease. The subjects of these resources can be medical, scientific, legal or about issues pertaining to special education or disabilities. Remember to give author, publisher's name and availability if known.
