When my seven-year old daughter was diagnosed with cancer last year she was given this book. It is full of lovely artwork with thought-provoking questions. Rather than just asking how she was feeling, my husband and I were able to ask if she’d like to pick a prompt to discuss or answer. She browsed through and filled in pages with her frustrations, questions, fears and raw emotions. I think this allowed her to have control over what she wanted to share and helped us communicate during a very, very difficult time in our lives. This would make an excellent gift for a young-person facing a medical challenge.
