Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2The purpose of this book is frankly bibliotherapeutic: to explain to young children what happens when a woman is treated for breast cancer. The vehicle is a story about Marcus and Ben, whose mother undergoes surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. Simple explanations of these procedures are given in a matter-of-fact but gentle and positive tone. Mom loses her hair and must rest a lot during her treatments. Sometimes the boys feel sad and cross because she can't enjoy the activities she once did, and their parents help them understand their emotions. In time, the woman regains her strength and her hair grows back, and the children are delighted, but the text clearly states that she will be closely monitored by her doctor to check for signs of the disease's return. The book, which is factual but not frightening, would be very helpful for families dealing with other forms of cancer and serious illnesses in general. Large, lively watercolors in cheerful colors show loving adults and the boys mostly at home. A glossary is included.Patricia Pearl Dole, formerly at First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, VA
