Elle's Silly Hats
AuthorHouse, 2010 - 12 pages
This story champions self-confidence, and teaches children to cope with their feelings and changing appearance in a positive way. This book can also provide an outlet for adults who are trying to break the news of their own cancer diagnosis and future changes to a child. A pediatric cancer diagnosis usually comes unexpectedly, and with a whirlwind of emotions, to both parent and child; but it is not a situation that cannot be triumphed. While the main character's body may be going through changes, aches, and pains, her spirit is never broken, and that is the true marvel of a child. Helping children maintain a positive and fun-loving attitude while battling a new stage in their life is an imperative part of the recovery process. A portion of the proceeds of this book will be donated to pediatric cancer research funds to aid in the fight against childhood cancers.

I didn't know a-lot about cancer except my grandmother had it, but I bought this book because I know the author, her family and her little girl who survived cancer. This is a sweet book, and offers a-lot of inspiration. I think it's great that they are spreading the word about cancer in kids and giving proceeds to fund cancer research. I think more needs to be done to raise awareness, this book is a great start.
