UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation Unveils Inspirational Children’s Book to Help Families in Need #uhccf


UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation unveils the new inspirational children’s book to help families in need on Feb. 18, 2015. This new book  “Oliver and Hope’s Superhero Saturday” is available for purchase here. Proceeds from this wonderful book will fund grants that will help families in need pay for their children’s medical expenses that are not covered, or not fully covered, by a health insurance plan.

Imagination takes flight in the third book of the award-winning Oliver & Hope series as Oliver the bear, Hope the butterfly and Millie the barn owl join their friend Charlotte the fox on a superhero adventure. 


When these lovable characters put on their hero capes, they have fun pretending to save a pirate ship, rescue a hot air balloon and face an evil mud monster. But when they discover their friend Chewie the English bulldog really needs their help, the friends must work together to become real heroes.

This beautiful 32-page book is geared toward children ages 3-8, and delivers a fun story and engaging images that enable readers to imagine how they might become a hero like the characters. The heartwarming story also teaches subtle lessons about the power of friendship, resiliency and imagination.

“Oliver & Hope’s Superhero Saturday” is the highly anticipated follow-up to the first two award-winning books in the series: “Oliver & Hope’s Amusing Adventure” and “Oliver & Hope’s Adventure Under the Stars.” Each book in the series is written by Meg Cadts and beautifully hand-illustrated and painted by Samantha Fitch. Meg Cadts is the pen name for the UHCCF team of writers and contributors.

All three of these books of the Oliver & Hope series are available to buy at uhccf.org/shop for just $13.95 each. Proceeds from the books and plush toys from the series help fund UHCCF grants that help families in need pay for children’s medical expenses not covered, or not fully covered, by their parents’ commercial health insurance plan. 

Did you know that just last year, UHCCF awarded medical grants worth an estimated $5.4 million to more than 2,000 children across the United States?
