Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carlee Hallman
A young boy is faced with the fact that his mother is undergoing treatment for cancer. He has good days and bad days as expressed in colors. Yellow is his happy day when his mother is feeling better and plays with him. For other days red expresses anger, green expresses his jealousy of normal families and purple is for anxious days. On orange days: "I want to pretend it's not really happening." The text with each picture says that it's OK to have those feelings. The pictures show the little boy and his family with tan skin. He has a big yellow stuffed rabbit. The picture for angry days shows him running over the rabbit with a scooter. A broken airplane and truck are also in the picture. The book ends with a pop-up of colored balloons and text which says: "I can hope that someday things will be right again." Children along with their parents are encouraged to accept their various feelings in the situation and hope for the best. Reviewer: Carlee Hallman
