This isn’t a book I ever wanted to buy, but I’m so thankful that it’s here. Cancer is hard for adults to talk about, never mind explaining a diagnosis like that to kids. This book is open, honest, factual, and straightforward. It allowed my kids to ask some of the questions they needed to, and opened up the ability for our family to have good conversations about hard topics. Recommend.
I was diagnosed with cancer and have a school-aged child. This book has been a gentle way for my 7-year-old to learn about the basics of cancer. It is informative and answers some of her critical questions -- what is cancer? is it contagious? do people die of cancer? The book's language is honest and gentle, not scary or overly sad. My child reads it to herself and uses it to ask additional questions. I have been very happy to have this as an additional resource while we navigate a challenging time.
My daughter’s best friend was just diagnosed with leukemia. How do you explain that to a five year old? A Kids Book About, that’s how. Seriously came straight here, and it delivered. Clear, concise, unemotional. Thank you!
My kids are 8 and 9. This book is clear, gentle, and uses every day language that kept their attention!
