    A special Gift for a sick family member or friend

    This little book would be a useful and cheerful gift for someone you love who is ill. Aimed at informing the caregiver of the wishes of the patient (who may not be up to speaking), Bonnie's illustrations will also help to bring a smile to all who look at them.

    Nifty Swifty

    What a great idea! You have to buy several because it makes a great gift for someone who is recuperating or even terminally ill. Now those that don't, won't, or can't communicate their needs only have to display the appropriate card.

    Everyone Could Use These Wonderful Communication Cards

    Bonnie's unique and wonderful illustrations are colorful, playful and endearing! These cards speak for the patient (or for you!) when they are unwilling, unable or just too tired to speak for him/herself... All ages can use the cards and when they're feeling better, they also bring a smile... Remember to look close to appreciate all of Bonnie's little artistic details. These cards will definitely help everyone GET BETTER!
