REDDING, Calif. -

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month and one Redding resident is doing his part to help.

Lo Saelee wrote a children’s book to help fight child abuse after his two-year-old niece was abused by her father.

The book is called Izzi and Monkey and it was published on iBooks last week.

Saelee is donating some of the proceeds to a charity to fight child abuse.

He said he has not decided which charity he will donate to yet but said that he will use it to help local children.
