Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dr. Judy Rowen
When the author underwent treatment for breast cancer, she felt supported by friends and family. One thing was missing, however-humor. She needed a good laugh! This book is aimed at children who are struggling with cancer in their family. With cartoons by Lindstrom (who draws a syndicated strip as well), Clifford tells her story from the perspective of her sons. Despite tears and fears, funny things still happen. Clifford gives young kids permission to cry and laugh. Questions for family discussion are included. This slim volume would make a good companion gift along with Not now...I'm having a No Hair Day, which tells Clifford's story from the adult point of view (with many of the same cartoons and anecdotes).

    Positive Family Reading

    I was searching for a more positive way to discuss this with my two sons (ages 7 & 9) after their dad's lung cancer diagnosis. It seems there are plenty of resources that help deal with grief, but few that focus on the hopeful. This little book does that without making false rosy promises. Told from the child's viewpoint really helps open discussion and cover lots of difficult subjects.The illustrations and humor keep things from becoming somber. I also liked the author's ending with the statements about sharing and becoming closer as a family and remembering the importance of love. This is something that often gets lost in the day-to-day dealing with illness.Our family is keeping a journal inspired by this book, with each member having a chance to add to it.
