Too Many Cells
Being diagnosed with cancer is life-altering in so many ways. But not only for the patient. The children in their life can also be profoundly affected. This beautifully illustrated children’s read-along book will help you broach the subject in a caring way, and have the difficult conversation with a child about their loved one’s illness. It is a sensitive topic, but we want children to approach the experience with the positive wonder and curiosity with which they approach all new topics. Each colorful page presents in a positive and non-threatening way the different potential situations a cancer patient might encounter, sparking a dialogue with the child about what they might expect as their loved one goes through treatment. A perfect book for parents, friends, or relatives to share with a child who has a sick loved one.
