Once Upon a Lyme: Animated Video

Howdy, folks!

It’s the beginning of May, which is Lyme Disease Awareness month. Last year I created and put out an educative children’s flipbook to help teach kids what to look for and how to stay safe while doing what kids are meant to do… play outside! This year, I took it a step further and created an animated video. Please share this with as many people as you can, and get the message out so hopefully the 300,000 new cases of Lyme reported annually in the U.S. will become far less! Knowledge is power!!!



Download a PDF of the book for free here.

General Information can be found at the link below, including best safety practices, where ticks like to roam, how to remove a tick, protect your property, and even your pets.


Think you may have Lyme? This fabulous book by Lyme expert Dr. Richard Horowitz “Why Canʼt I Get Better?” provides all the information and scientific research youʼd ever need.

For those already with dealing with Lyme, check out the positive and integrative website “Lyme Less, Live More,”designed to help you overcome chronic illness so you can, as the name suggests, Lyme less, live more!

I hope you enjoyed this video! Please don’t forget to share!

  1. Hi Kaitlyn, I found your site through your husband’s HuffPost article. I just watched your video with my two little ones and want to thank you for putting it together. I have heard enough horror stories about people with chronic Lyme disease that I had started feeling like we need to hide in the house and forego the outdoors things I’ve always enjoyed (like hiking in the mountains!) and was moved by your comment that children (and adults, I suppose!) should not be afraid of playing outside because of this disease. We are downloading the flip book because my kindergartener told me, “I wish we could have that book!” after watching the video. Thanks again!

    1. Thank you so much for that, Julie! I’m thrilled your children liked it, and I so appreciate your taking the time to let me know! It can be scary nowadays being a nature lover with ticks around, but we live on a beautiful planet, and knowing to just take care and check yourself daily is the best way to live fully (and smartly!) Thanks again for watching!
