Gimme a Break!
by Chanda Minor Brigance

Chan is a caregiver, which means she takes care of people who cannot take care of themselves. It’s a special and important job, but it can be tiring, so Chan is careful to take a break when she needs one. Presented for children, Gimme a Break! highlights the importance of caregivers caring for themselves as well as those they work with. Some strategies included in the story include connecting with friends and family, exercising, and enjoying a treat from time to time. Above all, Gimme a Break! reminds caregivers that it’s always appropriate to ask for a break.

Chanda Minor Brigance is co-founder of the Brigance Brigade Foundation, which raises grant funding for those living with Lou Gehrig’s Disease (ALS). Her personal experiences as a caregiver inspired her to write children’s books. She is the author of Who Cares? and Will You Remember? as well as Gimme a Break!. Besides writing, she enjoys eating, relaxing, and vacationing. Chanda lives in Baltimore, Maryland, with her husband. Connect with her at, or learn more about the Brigance Brigade Foundation at
