My Book about Cancer A Workbook to Help Children Deal with the Diagnosis and Treatment of a Mother with Cancer by

When a father or mother has been diagnosed with cancer, the entire family can be traumatized. My Book About Cancer is a workbook that gives children an effective emotional outlet as they cope with their parent's disease. By creating and discussing their own book of experiences with parents, grandparents, and other adult loved ones, children can share their emotions and concerns as the family progresses through the diagonsis and treatment of cancer. This interactive workbook is both a coloring book and a sketchpad. Children can color various animal characters that depict scenes, images, and emotions likely to be encountered during a parent's illness. Each facing pages allows children enough blank space to draw pictures of thier own experience. My Book About Cancer is available in two versions, one for children with a mother with cancer and one for those with a father with the disease.
