Synopsis

Our Dad is Getting Better by Alex Silver, Emily Silver, Anna Rose Silver

This book and its companion, Our Mom Is Getting Better , reflect the love, honesty, and support these parents were able to provide to their kids not only during the parent's cancer treatment, but in the unexpected New Normal life after treatment.This topic is important because it introduces us to a phase often goes unaddressed but is critical to a family's well being. Involving the kids in a parent's recovery time can be a major milestone in the family's healing process, as illustrated by this pair of books. Colourful illustrations and language by children for children genuinely communicate the message in an age-appropriate way. These books address some of the concerns that are experienced by many children, and explain situations such as: the need for continued visits to the doctor; the importance of observing healthy habits (sound nutrition, adequate daily exercise, and plenty of rest); how to be helpful around the house (kids' involvement in familiar household tasks can generate compassion for others and pride in their new abilities, etc.). This book contains encouraging words to let other children know that time can heal, and life can be fun again.
