This lovely, little children's picture book emphasises the importance of speaking honestly and openly about cancer when someone in the family is diagnosed. It touches on topics that might worry a child, such as guilt, concerns about catching cancer, how they can help, understanding when the person is tired, feeling ill or losing their hair. It also discusses the reactions of friends who might not know what to say. Author Julie A. Stokes is a clinical psychologist who founded Winston's Wish, the leading childhood bereavement charity in the UK. Suitable for primary school-aged children.
