Genre: Junior nonfiction
Reading Level: Age 3-8
Summary: How a child can deal with a loved one’s cancer diagnosis and treatment.
Cathy says: When my sons were 10 and 4, I had cancer and was very sick with the treatments. This book would have been helpful. It’s written with insight as to the questions a child would come up with, not the least of all, “Will you die?” This came from my 10 year old and it echoes in my heart to this day.
